Breaking: Nationwide blackout looms as electricity workers vow to join Labour strike

Nigeria set to experience nationwide blackout as electricity workers gears to withdraw their services from Sunday midnight in compliance to the organised labour’s indefinite strike slated for Monday, 3rd of June, 2024.

The acting General Secretary of the National Union of Electricity Employees, Dominic Igwebike, disclosed this in a notice on Friday.

The development comes in compliance with the indefinite strike action by the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress over the failure of the federal government to sign and implement a new minimum wage and the reversal of the April 3, 240 percent electricity tariff hike.

“The withdrawal of services becomes effective Sunday 2nd June by midnight”, the notice stated.
