In a bold display of solidarity, members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) have taken to the streets of Abuja, the federal capital territory, to protest the recent attack on Joe Ajaero, the president of NLC in Imo state. The demonstrators have effectively blocked entry and exit points of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, causing disruptions to airport operations.
The protest comes in response to the incident involving Joe Ajaero and reflects the collective outrage of the NLC members. In a coordinated effort, aviation unions affiliated with NLC had earlier directed their workers to cease services for all public and private Owerri flights, both inbound and outbound, starting from Wednesday midnight.
The NLC’s protest serves as a powerful statement against violence and underscores the unity and determination of the labor community in Nigeria. As the demonstrators continue to rally for justice, their actions highlight the importance of solidarity and peaceful expression in addressing grievances within society.
