Labour to Picket NERC, DisCos Offices Today Over Electricity Tariff Hike


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) is set to picket the office of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) and Distribution Companies (DisCos)’s premises nationwide today over the hike in electricity tariff.

The Unions said in a joint statement by NLC’s Acting General Secretary Mr. Chris Uyot and his TUC Counterpart Mr. Anka Hassan. The statement directed the two Labour centres to work together to carry out the action while calling for cooperation.

Their action follows a hike in the tariff for electricity consumers who enjoy at least 20 hours of daily power supply.

Though the NERC had reviewed the tariff, the Labour Unions said they were picketing the Agency’s office as well as the premises of distribution companies after a Sunday reversal deadline failed.
