NLC Strike Cuts Power In Abuja

Since the two-day warning strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) on September 5, chaos has been on the streets, protests in the air - the NLC's strike has set the entire country on edge, with some workers chased from their offices and citizens scrambling to navigate the turmoil. Abuja is a battleground, with finance workers under siege and electricity workers joining the fight. In this war between the union and the government, the people of Nigeria are trapped in the crossfire.

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) workers stated that they would be complying with NLC’s desires by no longer providing power supply to Abuja’s residents; therefore, they urged residents to find a way to manage the power outage till power was restored.

“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 AEDC letter to Abuja residents reads.
