Workers’ Strike, Cause Of Current Loss Of Electricity Supply In Imo — EEDC

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) says the current loss of electricity supply in Imo is as a result of an ongoing industrial action by organised labour.

The company said that workers, under the organised labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) were on strike over alleged “violent disruption and unprovoked assault on Imo workers by yet to be identified  persons  during the May Day celebration”.

This is contained in a statement  on Wednesday in Enugu by the Head, Corporate Communications of EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh.

“After the joint Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting on Monday, the organised labour resolved that all affiliates of both NLC and TUC in Imo  are to withdraw their services beginning from 12 midnight on Tuesday.

“Consequently, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), which is EEDC’s primary source of power supply, was forced to shut down in the state this morning by 00:00 hours.

“As a result of this development, all customers of EEDC in Imo  under its Owerri, New Owerri, Orlu, and Mbaise districts are out of electricity supply.

“We are aware of the inconveniences this situation will cause our esteemed customers and are hopeful that the issue will be resolved in good time and supply restored to our customers,’’ Ezeh said.

He appealed to customers to be vigilant and ensure that the electricity infrastructure serving them was not attacked by vandals during the period of the outage.

“We remain committed and working assiduously to deliver improved services to our esteemed customers,” he added.
