The two-day warning strike of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) commenced on Tuesday to partial compliance from workers in some parts of the country, including Lagos State, Rivers State, and Abuja.
Some Lagosians expressed their frustration over the hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidies by President Bola Tinubu.
Workers of Ikeja Electric were locked out of their offices as some members of the union manned the gate to turn customers back.
But the industrial action order did not have any effect at the Lagos State Secretariat where workers were seen going about their regular business.
Bank doors were also open for business with customers seen entering and exiting the bank premises.
In Abuja, the block housing the Federal Ministry of Education at the Federal Secretariat was locked for about five minutes and later opened for civil servants to resume work.
Meanwhile, other blocks at the secretariat remained open with workers going into the building for work.
However, the turnout of workers is significantly low compared to other workdays.
The situation was similar at the Rivers State Secretariat as some civil servants were seen at the Secretariat.
It was reported that the Secretariat gate was open to workers and visitors.
