Electricity workers under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) have suspended their strike barely 24 hours of nation-wide blackout.
This was confirmed by press releases from both Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKDC) and Ikeja Electric obtained by Nairametrics via their official twitter handles, on Thursday morning.
“Dear customer, National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) has suspended its strike. Our offices & payment channels are open for business. Thank you for your patience & understanding.”
Following the agreement reached between NUEE and representatives of the Federal Government this morning, on all the issues in contention, the Union wishes to suspend the industrial action it embarked upon to press home these demands.
Consequently, members are urged to return to their duty posts while we monitor the implementation of these agreements. We would not hesitate to resume action if the agreements are not implemented.”
