By Bassey Inyang in Calabar   

As the strike embarked upon by the NLC entered the third day on Friday, some banks in Calabar metropolis shut their gates against labour leaders who threatened to picket them.

However, having refused to join the strike, they carefully provided access to their customers into the banking hall where they attended to them.

THISDAY observed that the NLC had posted their bulletins on the walls of some of the banks, explaining why they should join the strike.

Though their attempts to get the banks to join the strike failed, the NLC leaders and a handful of its members continued their protest march through some streets in Calabar in their attempted to mobilise members of the public to join the strike.
