Supporters of the factional National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, on Monday, took to the streets in Gudu, Abuja, to protest what they described as the meddlesomeness of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in the affairs of the party.

The protesters carrying placards with various inscriptions began their march from the new Abuja chapter secretariat.

It recalls the conflict between the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Labour Party.


The NLC had earlier accused Abure of running the affairs of the LP as a sole administrator. As a result, the NLC passed a vote of no confidence in the leadership of the national chair of the party and consequently called for his resignation.
