Officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, shut down the headquarters of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Company Limited in Abuja.

Human and vehicular movements were prevented from entering the headqauters of the national oil company.

Activities in various offices were also disrupted.

This is as a result of the directive of the Organised Labour comprising the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to all its affiliate unions.

Labour had directed its members nationwide to down tools in protest of the attack on the President of NLC, Joe Ajaero, in Imo State.

Court Intervention

Although the National Industrial Court, Abuja, had restrained both the NLC and the TUC from embarking on the strike, however, the unions ignored the order and proceeded as planned.


Addressing a press conference on Monday in Abuja, the Organised Labour stated that the government at all levels must wake up to its responsibilities.

Below are scenes from the National Assembly and NNPC HQ:
