Some aggrieved workers, who subscribed to a mass housing project by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Kriston-Lally, on Thursday, disrupted a political debate session of the congress.
The debate session was put together to grill some candidates and their political parties on public administration.
All arrangements for the debate, which was scheduled for Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, were disrupted when, at about 2pm, protesters besieged the venue chanting: “All we are saying, give us our money”.
The protesters alleged that they had been defrauded by the NLC and its ally, adding that they can only be placated if they got full refund of the monies they subscribed with.
It would be recalled that in 2013, the NLC went into partnership with Kriston-Lally, a private development company to provide affordable housing for Nigerian workers in the FCT to which over three thousand subscribers keyed into with the initial 10 per cent deposit amounting to over N2.5 billion.
