Power supply in Nigeria faced disruptions as electricity workers joined the two-day strike organized by the Nigerian Labour Congress in protest of the removal of petrol subsidies by President Bola Tinubu.
The strike led to a reduction in power supply across the country, prompting electricity distribution companies to notify consumers and inform them of the situation.
The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company attributed the general power outage within its franchise area to the NLC’s strike.
AEDC’s notice to customers stated: “We are aware of the general power outage being experienced across our franchise due to enforcement by NLC of the 2-day warning strike embarked upon by the labour union.”
The company also apologized for any inconvenience caused and assured customers that they were actively engaging with stakeholders to minimize the impact of the strike.
They recommended that customers unplug sensitive electronic devices and appliances during the outage and promised to provide updates through official social media channels.
Similarly, the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company reported that its workers’ participation in the strike had resulted in the shutdown of its feeders, leading to the current power outage in their franchise states.
Abdulazeez Abdullahi, Head of Corporate Communications at Kaduna Electric, expressed hope that the impasse between the federal government and the NLC would be resolved promptly to restore power supply.
