BREAKING: Electricity Workers Suspend Nationwide Strike

The National Union of Electricity Employees has suspended its nationwide strike.

Eko Electricity Distribution Company, which made this known via its Twitter handle @EKEDP on Thursday, said its offices and payment channels would be open for business. The company thanked customers for their patience and understanding.

The electricity workers had shut down the headquarters of Ikeja Electric and Eko Electricity Distribution Company in Ikeja and Marina, Lagos on Wednesday.

In a statement, the President of the NUEE, Joe Ajaero, accused the Bureau of Public Enterprise of failing to address and pay up over 2,000 disengaged workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria since 2013.

He alleged underpayment of severance of over 50,000 ex-PHCN staff and illegal transfer of schools built by the union to investors.
