The Lagos State Secretariat at Alausa, Ikeja is under lock and key as workers were prevented from entering the premises to resume work for the day by the Labour Unions that commenced strike Thursday over the minimum wage issue.
The Labour unions who were said to have arrived the premises as early as 7 a.m on Thursday blocked the in and out entrances of the secretariat stopping workers who came for the day’s work from gaining entrance into the premises.
The action is to enforce the strike called by the trade unions on the unresolved issue of minimum wage for workers.
Parked conspicuously in front of the gate are branded vehicles of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and Trade Union Congress, TUC.
As at the time of filing this report, the secretariat was still under lock and key with workers and Trade union officials hanging outside.
There was no going in or coming out for the few who had gained entrance into the premises before the arrival of the unionist.
