How NLC Protesters Shut Sanwo-Olu Out Of His Office

Reports has it that Sanwo-Olu has been locked out of his office as Labour protesters shut down Alausa Government House. 

Workers under the aegis of Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress protested on Wednesday against plans to remove minimum wage from the exclusive list. 

News Mail Nigeria gathered that the protesters took their agitations to the Office of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

They blocked the entrance of Sanwo-Olu’s office and halted activities at the Lagos government office. 

The protest also created gridlock around Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja, Allen Junction, Ogba and Agidingbi etc.

You would recall that the bill to remove the negotiation on minimum wage from exclusive list to the concurrent list passed the second reading in the House of Representatives on February 23.

Garba Mohammed (APC Kano) who sponsored  the bill said the bill is to enable both the federal and state governments to freely negotiate minimum wage “with their workers in line with our federalism.”

The NLC sees this move as a way of undermining the Nigerian working class.
