NLC threatens strike over latest electricity tariff hike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called for immediate reversal of the latest increase in electricity tariff, saying that Nigerians have bled enough.
In a statement released late last night and signed by the President of NLC, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, the congress said the Federal Government should reverse the increase immediately or face an unprecedented industrial resistance by Nigerian workers.
Wabba pointed out that the increase in electricity tariff negated the agreement the Organised Labour reached with government in September 2020.
He also said that the increase will further imperil the local economy, lead to the loss of millions of jobs by Nigerian workers and trigger wider social discomfitures.
