Subsidy Removal: Nigeria electricity workers to embark on nationwide strike

The National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) on Sunday, June 4, directed its members to join the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) protest strike against the fuel subsidy removal by President Bola Tinubu.

The union in a memo signed by its general secretary, Dominic Igwebike, urged its members to comply with the directive and stop work from the early hours of Wednesday.

According to People Gazette, NUEE said its decision was a sequel to the NLC emergency national executive council (NEC) meeting held on June 2 at the Labour House Abuja over the sudden removal of fuel Subsidy, which it said brought untold hardship to Nigerians as well as increased inflation in the economy.

“To this effect, all National, State and Chapter executives are requested to start the mobilisation of our members in total compliance with this directive.

Please note that withdrawal of Services nationwide commences from 0.00 hours of Wednesday, June 7, 2023.

You are encouraged to work with the leadership of State Executive Councils (SEC) of the Congress in your various states with a view to having a successful action,” the memo read.
