Members of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) are currently staging a protest, causing the blockage of the entrance to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja. The demonstration is in response to the recent attack on NLC President, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State last week.
Reports indicate that the organized labor groups gathered at the airport around 8:58 A.M., implementing their directive to members working in the aviation industry to prevent all flights bound for Owerri from departing the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport.
Upon attempting to enter the airport, the workers’ union members were denied access by security operatives at the checkpoint. Subsequently, the protesters decided to block both entry and exit points of the airport. This action has resulted in heavy vehicular traffic around the airport, and travelers are compelled to trek into the airport premises.
The protest is a visible display of the unions’ dissatisfaction with the attack on NLC President Joe Ajaero, and it reflects the unions’ commitment to advocating for the rights and safety of their members. The situation is ongoing, and developments are expected as the protest unfolds.
