NLC storms LP headquarters, demands Abure’s resignation

Members of the Nigeria Labour Congress, (NLC), national transition committee, on Tuesday, stormed the headquarters of the Labour Party in Abuja, demanding the immediate resignation of the National Chairman, Julius Abure.

Leading the members of the labour union to the secretariat with solidarity songs, the Acting Chairman of the transition committee, Aduwaheed Omar, called for the resignation of Abure on grounds that his tenure as the chairman of the party had expired.

However, the gate of the premises was shut by security operatives when the officials arrived at the party’s headquarters.

It was further gathered that the police fired teargas to dispatch the protesters, who attempted to force their way inside.
