The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Wednesday staged a protest at the Corporate Affairs Commission’s (CAC) Headquarters in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.
Members of the union arrived at the CAC headquarters in buses and occupied the main entrance of the CAC headquarters, chanting songs of solidarity.
They also displayed placards saying it is their right to protest and their rights will not be trampled on.
“You cannot do that; you cannot undermine workers’ rights. We are just warming up, tomorrow, we will be here again,” the workers chanted as security agents at the main entrance of the CAC headquarters look on.
The workers are protesting over alleged anti-labour matters, they are accusing the CAC management of clamping down on union members who challenged anti-workers policies.
The protest was led by NLC Chairman Ayuba Wabba and it is planned to last for three days.
