NUEE calls for review of power sector, laments stigmatisation of staff


Electricity workers under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees have called on the federal government to review the privatization of Nigeria’s Power Sector as it has added no value to the lives of the citizens.

The workers who made the call during a press briefing held on Monday in Lagos to intimate the public on the situation rocking the power sector, explained that the motive for the privatisation failed to meet its mission.

While lamenting the stigmatization of staff by the Generation Companies GenCos and Distribution companies DisCos, as well as the failure of the federal government to pay the entitlement of former staff of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria as agreed in December 2019, members of the union urged the government to act swiftly on their demands to avoid a total collapse of the sector.
