Blackout Looms In Four States As PHED Workers Threaten Strike by valentineuwakwe(m): 10:05am On Jan 08
Rivers and four other states under the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Plc may be plunged into darkness following an industrial dispute that greeted the alleged sacking of 60 workers of the electricity company .
This followed a resolution by the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies Union , which insisted that the retrenchment did not follow due process.
Our correspondent reports that the other three states are Bayelsa, Cross River and Akwa Ibom.
The Assistant General Secretary of the association, Innocent Douglas, while speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt on Thursday, said the sacking affected workers in the four states.
He said , “ It is injurious to labour. We don ’ t accept what is happening. This is mass sacking ; sacking of over 60 persons at a time . Mass sacking is against the labour movement .”
Douglas said the association had demanded that the company reverse its decision or face an industrial action .
Efforts to get the response of the PHED’ s acting Manager , Corporate Communications, Chioma Aninwe, proved abortive , as she did not respond to calls and a text message sent to her phone.

Will make absolutely no difference if they go on their yeye strike. Those states provide gas for electricity turbines all over the country yet are perpetually in darkness especially since the beginning of this junta in 2015. They should go on their bloody strike and see who cares cool

How can anyone forget their teachers? Who taught them from primary to the tertiary level
Can you still recall the name of the teacher that taught you ABC or Tables. Many teachers bathed you in the pool of their knowledge and shape you into what you are now.

See these guys?
Which blackout looms?


We don dey blackout since time immemorial nah. See rubbish oooooo.
Nigeria is shitty sincerely.
Labour and trade unions are now for personal gains and interest.
Consumer rights and privileges is now a thing of the past.
Unions wake up and embark on strike irrespective of the untold hardship their customers will bear and they dont care.


Which way Nigeria...........
