JUST IN: {Subsidy Removal} Protesters pull down National Assembly gate

The Organised Labour protest against fuel subsidy removal and other policies against the people by the President Bola Tinubu administration is getting intense as protesters, on Wednesday, morning broke down the first gate of the National Assembly (NASS)  complex and forced their way into the premises.

The protesters subsequently moved to the second gate of the Assembly Complex even as Senators immediately entered a closed-door session.

The protesters in their hundreds convened at the Unity Fountain from where they marched to the NASS Complex.

Already Senator Ali Ndume and Senator Ireti Kingibe are with the protesters trying to speak to them ahead of today’s screening of ministerial nominees.


Earlier, the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, told reporters at the Unity Fountain that there is “nothing stopping the protest, not even an overture from the government”.

He said that the Organised Labour won’t shelve the protest until there is a desired response from the government.

Ajaero said the response from the states will determine “whether the protest will be from today, or tomorrow or next or till thy kingdom come, it is not by using force”.
