JUST IN: Labour shuts FCT Minister’s gate

Strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) is gaining momentum in the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT).

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) and the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) Labour, the Joint Union Action Committee (JUAC) on Monday shut the main gate of the FCT Administration popularly known as the Minister’s Gate, stopping the workers from gaining entrance.

The workers were seen floating around the gate while labour leaders enforced compliance of “no entry, no going out.”

The President of JUAC, Comrade Rifkatu Lortyer, vowed the action would continue till their demands are met.

She advised FCTA and FCDA workers to stay at home and obey the rules.

She said: “You know it is a long time struggle over the minimum wage and the electricity tariff that is just added to it. And till now government has reached a compromise. Since the national body NLC and TUC have declared strike we have to enforce it”.
Security operatives are presently at the entrance of the FCTA and FCDA.
