MTN Nigeria Shutdown Operations In Abuja, Set to Leave Nigeria Soon. MTN Nigeria office located in Maitama District of Abuja, on Tuesday was under lock and key following the nationwide picketing of the company by the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC. MTN Nigeria set to leave Nigeria soon, Mediangr.com learnt.

Newsmen, who visited the office, reports that it was locked with only policemen and other security personnel outside the gate.

Mediangr.com that the picketing of MTN offices by NLC, which started on Monday, was in protest against non-unionisation of its workers.

The leadership of the union and other members had barricaded the head office of the company in Lagos for about eight hours, preventing workers from carrying out their daily duties.

A security man, who pleaded anonymity, told Mediangr.com in Abuja that there was a directive from the MTN headquarters in Lagos that all staff of the organisation should not come to work until further notice.

“Maybe it is because of the protest by some people in our office in Lagos.

“We were told to come to office but all other staff of the organisation were asked to stay at home till further notice, ‘’ he said.

The security man suggested that if push comes to shove the company may soon leave the country due to stiffer business working conditions in the country.

Recall that similar protest in Lagos was led by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba.

“There are a lot of anti-labour practices by the company, which include denying the workers freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining,’’ Wabba said.
