Nigeria May Face Total Blackout As Electricity Workers Threaten Strike


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigeria’s electricity supply crisis could go from bad to worst Wednesday as the organised labour has directed workers in the power sector to drop their tools and begin an indefinite strike over pending labour issues with the Transmission Company of Nigeria.

The National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) on Tuesday gathered on the headquarters of the TCN in Abuja.

The aggrieved workers kicked against the alleged failure of the Federal Government of Nigeria to pay the entitlement of former staff of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) in December 2019.

They stated that this is a prelude to an indefinite strike action expected to start on August 17.

In a circular entitled “call to action”, Joe Ajaero, the general secretary of NUEE, instructed the workers to ensure total compliance, promising to paralyse operations of TCN across Nigeria over anti-masses activities.



This means Nigeria’s electricity supply crisis could worsen from tomorrow following this impasse.

The circular read in part, “You are hereby enjoined to mobilise immediately for serious picketing of TCN Headquarters and stations nationwide over the directive by the TCN Board that all PMs in acting capacity going to AGM must appear for a promotion interview.

“This action takes effect from Tuesday, August 16 2022 and total withdrawal of services commences on Wednesday, August 17 2022. Ensure full compliance in all the stations nationwide.”
