Just-in: Electricity Workers Begin Nationwide Strike by nwakibie3(m): 9:32am On Dec 11, 2019
Nigerians may have to brace up for nationwide blackouts as electricity workers in the country begin an indefinite strike starting this morning.

The decision to embark on the indefinite strike became necessary after the Federal Government failed to dialogue with the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) to resolve the lingering industrial crisis in the sector.

According to a statement issued by Assistant Secretary-General of NUEE, Anthony Sule, the 21-day ultimatum given to Minister of Power Saleh Mamman expired at midnight on Tuesday. The statement read partly thus:

“The ministry of power has failed to resolve some issues affecting members of the union since 2013 when the power sector was privatised especially issues that with the over 2,000 disengaged former PHCN workers and their pay off.”

Nairametrics confirmed that the strike has indeed begun across all Electricity Distribution Companies (DIsCos) in the country.
