Tariff Hike: Labour Moves To Shut NERC, DisCos Offices Nationwide





that they would shut down offices of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) and Distribution Companies nationwide.


They said the offices would be under lock and key until the Federal Government accedes to their request on total reversal of electricity tariff hike.


The Federal Government later approved a marginal slash, which labour rejected and demanded full reversal.


Both Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and its counterpart from the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had last week warned the commission to immediately reverse the hike on or before Sunday, May 12.


The movement also warned the commission to announce the stoppage of what it described as “discriminatory practice” of segregating electricity consumers into arbitrary bands.


Giving an update on Sunday night, the head of information at NLC headquarters, Benson Upah, in an official notification sent to journalists, said members of the movement would converge on Labour House by 7:00am.


“NLC invites you to cover the picketing of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission headquarters in Abuja,” Benson said in the official notification sent to our correspondent last night.
