NLC Pickets Labour Party Headquarters, Demands Abure’s Resignation


Tension escalated at the Labour Party’s national headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday as members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) staged a protest, demanding the immediate resignation of Julius Abure as the party’s national chairman.

The demonstrators, led by Theophilus Ndubuaku, the acting Chairman of the NLC’s Political Commission, claimed that Abure’s election as the national chairman was not properly conducted.

Ndubuaku also alleged that the party’s planned convention, scheduled to take place on March 27 in Umuahia, Abia State, is illegal under Abure’s leadership. The NLC accused Abure of orchestrating the convention to secure his position as the sole administrator of the Labour Party, with concerns raised over a lack of transparency surrounding the event.

Despite the absence of party officials at the headquarters, the labour leaders occupied the premises, chanting songs against Abure and accusing him of embezzling funds. Officers from the Nigeria Police Force were present to monitor the situation and prevent any potential vandalization.

The NLC’s protest has shed light on the growing rift between the labour union and the Labour Party, with tensions escalating over the party’s leadership and upcoming convention.
