NLC/TUC Strike: Total Darkness Engulf Nigeria As Nigeria TCN Shut Down National Grid


LAGOS NOVEMBER 24TH (NEWRANGERS)-Electricity workers across Nigeria have shut down the national grid, leading to a nationwide blackout.

The strike was called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in protest of the assault on Joe Ajaero, the President of the NLC, on November 1, 2023, in Imo State.

Ndidi Mbah, the spokesperson for the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), confirmed the strike on Tuesday. She said that electricity workers, members of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE), followed directives of the NLC to withdraw their services around 11:20 am on Monday.

“Electricity workers are NLC members; they’ve followed the directive by organised labour to withdraw their services from Tuesday”, she stated.

Currently, the Federal Capital Territory and its environs are experiencing a blackout.

Recall that the NLC and Trade Union Congress (TUC) announced a nationwide indefinite strike starting Tuesday despite a court order restraining the unions from doing so.
