There may be a nationwide blackout by the Electricity Workers, as the workers, under the umbrella of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) may shut down the Electricity grid soon.
‘The Interviews Nigeria’ gathered via ‘Onyx news’ that Electricity workers are threatening to embark on a Nationwide Industrial strike to stop the proposed Sale of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN)
The union has vowed to embark on suspended nationwide protest if the government continues with the plan of selling the TCN. It also appealed to the National Assembly and Nigerians to resist the push for the sale of TCN which will further leave the Nation with regrets.
The General Secretary of the National Union of Electricity Employees of Nigeria, Comrade Joe Ajaero, who disclosed this to newsmen said,’’ the Union wonders why the government is still bent on selling off TCN when the transmission and distribution have after eight years of privatization failed to yield expected turnaround of the power sector’’
According to him, ’’Almost eight years after the privatization of the power sector, there has not been any visible improvement in terms of power supply, expansion or investments by the new owners of the DisCos and GenCos’’.
