NLC Shuts Down Picket Labour Party Headquarters, Demands Abure’s Sack

Protesting members of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, took over the Utako Abuja Headquarters of the Labour Party , Wednesday, demanding the immediate sack of the National Chairman, Comrade Julius Abure.

The protesting unionists were stopped from entering the party’s office by armed regular policemen on duty.

Regardless, the largely peaceful protesters were heard singing solidarity songs while calling for an end to “Abure’s reign of corruption tyranny”.

The NLC leadership had accused Abure of planning to hold an “illegal convention”. This, they said, was to perpetrate his rule or in the alternative appoint cronies to act on his behalf.

Recall that both the Joe Ajaero-led NLC and the House of Representatives Caucus of the LP had taken issue with Abure over the planned convention date.

However, Organised Labour, which constitutes a major power block within the party, has demanded that Abure step. They said it would allow an election-independent audit into the party’s finances.
