BLACKOUT - Electricity Staff Begin Indefinite Nationwide Strike Tomorrow Jan14

The already deplorable power situation in the country may worsen as workers in the power sector have threatened to stop the supply of electricity across the country by Tuesday, January 14. 

The industrial action is a protest against the federal government’s refusal to conclude the payment of workers’ entitlements following the privatisation of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN). The industrial action follows the expiration of the 14-day ultimatum issued by the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) to the federal government in December last year to conclude all labour- related issues in the sector. General Secretary of NUEE, Mr Joe Ajaero, who announced the strike at a press conference in Lagos, lamented that two months after the handover of the assets of the defunct PHCN, the labour issues are yet to be concluded.
