In a statement, the Assistant Secretary-General of NUEE, Anthony Sule, had said the union’s decision was made since the federal government failed to dialogue with them to resolve the lingering issues in the sector.
“Subsequently, the action has led to a nationwide shut down of electricity installations and has resulted in the disruption of service across our network,” the company said.
However, on Thursday morning, the (NUEE), suspended its strike action, hours after a nationwide blackout in the country due to Electricity Workers’ industrial action.
Moments after the statements were released, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to air their opinions on the strike action.
