Electricity Workers Shutdown National Grid Causing Blackout Amid NLC’s Indefinite Strike

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced a nationwide blackout as a result of the labor union’s decision to shut down the national grid. This development occurred in response to the ongoing indefinite strike by organized labour unions in Nigeria. As of 2:19 a.m. this morning, June 3, 2024, the national grid was officially shut down, plunging the entire country into darkness.

The shutdown comes in compliance with the joint directive issued by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to down tools in protest of the new minimum wage. Electricity workers, in solidarity with the labor unions, took decisive action, leading to the unprecedented blackout.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria hereby informs the general public that the labor union has shut down the national grid, resulting in a blackout nationwide,” stated Ndidi Mbah, the spokesperson for TCN.

The impact of this blackout is widespread, affecting homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure across the country. Nigerians are left grappling with the sudden loss of electricity, highlighting the urgency of resolving the labor dispute and restoring power.
