The ongoing strike was in full effect at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja as activities was paralysed due to full compliance.
It was noted that most workers did not report at their workstations at the building located in the Three Arms Zone.
A few of the workers who reported for work were however seen sitting idly at the gates of the complexes in the secretariat. Security was also beefed up at the gates to forestall breakdown of law and order.
Some of the offices closed were the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health.
At the complex housing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the flag of the Nigeria Labour Congress was hoisted on the main gate which remained closed to workers.
Despite the industrial action, however, military and para-military officials were seen taking part in the rehearsal for the Independence Day Parade at the Eagle Square.
