Government Offices Shut in Abuja as NLC Strike Begins

Several government ministries, departments, and agencies in Abuja have been shut down in solidarity with the two-day nationwide strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

This action comes in response to the government’s failure to engage in discussions with organized labor regarding measures to alleviate the impact of the removal of fuel subsidies, which has led to increased fuel prices.

The NLC has also pointed to other grievances, such as alleged police intervention in union matters, exploitation of workers’ rights in Imo state, and planned demolition in the Federal Capital Territory, among other issues.
As a result, key government buildings and institutions in Abuja, including the Federal Secretariat and commercial banks, were deserted as workers supported the strike.
