BREAKING: Strike: Entrance, exit to National Assembly blocked by union members

Members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), an affiliate of the Nigeria Labour Congress have laid siege to the entrance and exit of the National Assembly.

Some of the workers who arrived early to monitor the compliance met the entrance and exit gates blocked with two coastal buses.

The situation was not also different at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja, as our reporter observed that intending passengers travelling by air can no longer gain access to the airport, following a blockade by the striking workers.

Recall that following failure to reach a compromise on a new minimum wage by the tripartite committee set up by the Federal Government, the organised labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress commenced a nationwide strike today.

The development has already led to the shutdown of the national grid.
