NLC Vows To Take May Day Celebration To Abuja Streets

According to the Nigeria Labour Congress, the National May Day celebration in Abuja will be held on the streets in order for the Congress to deepen its reconnection with the people.

Mr. Emmanuel Ugboaja, General Secretary of the Congress, stated this in a statement signed on Saturday in Abuja.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the message was headlined “National May Day Celebration in Abuja: Change of Venue.”

“As you must be aware, the government at the centre took a questionable last-minute action to deny us the use of the Eagle Square for this year’s May Day celebrations three days before the event, despite having granted us the permit months ago.”

“Do remember that this is a venue we have been using in the past decades for our May Day celebrations.


“The sudden decision to withdraw the permit may be laden with mischief and actually a sign of what is to come in the near future. It is a call to all of us to be prepared.

“As a result of this unfortunate development, we want to inform you that we have decided to shift the venue for the celebration to the Streets of Abuja.
“This is so that we can deepen our reconnection with the people who are our true partners in the struggle for a free society,” he said.

Ajeato said that the take-off point shall be at the National Headquarters of the Nigeria Labour Congress by 8:00 a:m

He added that all affiliates are to assemble on the grounds of the Paschal Bafyau Labour House on Monday the 1st of May from where we shall proceed on a rally around Abuja.

He, however, assured workers of the NLC’s continued commitment to traditions and values.
