Labour shuts Wike’s office gate

On Monday, organised labour shut the main gate of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Administration, FCDA, popularly known as the Minister’s Gate, preventing workers from gaining entrance into their offices.

The gate was shut by the union of the FCTA, the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) labour, the Joint Union, and the Action Committee (JUAC).

Workers were seen milling around the gate while labour leaders enforced compliance with the rule of “no entry, no going out.”

Speaking at the gate, the President of JUAC, Comrade Rifkatu Lortyer, vowed to continue the action until their demands are met.

Lortyer advised FCTA and FCDA workers to stay at home and obey the rules.

She said: “You know it is a long time struggle over the minimum wage and the electricity tariff that is just added to it. And till now, the government has reached a compromise. Since the national body NLC and TUC have declared strike, we have to enforce it.”
