Following the closure of the two gates leading into the State Secretariat in Adamawa by NLC officials enforcing the strike over increase in fuel price, some workers have resorted to using foot paths to gain access to their offices.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many workers, particularly car owners, parked outside the closed gates and used the foot paths in entering the secretariat.

Some of the workers, who spoke to NAN, lamented the closure of the gates, adding that NLC should not insist on enforcing compliance.

"It is not proper the way the NLC decided to be going round closing gates to prevent workers from entering their office premises.

"They should embark on public enlightenment to woo workers to join the strike action instead of resorting to closing gates to prevent staff who are entering, " a worker, who simply identified himself as Bappa, said.

A NAN correspondent, who monitored the second day of the strike action, reports that the Federal Secretariat, banks, markets and motor parks were all open.
