NLC protesters have forced their way into the National Assembly complex, breaking down the gate.
The protest by the Organised Labour against the “anti-people” policies of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration is getting intense as protesters, on Wednesday morning, broke down the first gate of the National Assembly complex and forced their way into the premises.
The protesters subsequently moved to the second gate of the Assembly complex.
The Organised Labour including the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), and their affliate unions today, kicked off a protest in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, and other states of the Federation including Lagos, Abia, Plateau, Rivers, Zamfara, Cross River, Enugu, Ogun, Kaduna, Edo, Imo, Kastina, Ondo, Kano, Kwara, and Ebonyi.
The protesters in their hundreds convened at the Unity Fountain from where they marched to the NASS complex.
Senate President Godswill Akpabio is expected to address the protesters ahead of today’s screening of Ministerial nominees.
