Electricity workers threaten strike


ELECTRICITY workers under the umbrella of Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC), has threatened to embark on strike.

This followed what it described as the unlawful sack of its President, Dr. Chris Okonkwo, and other anti-labour activities of the management of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

The Managing Director, Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Umar Mohammed, had on April 24 issued the letter dismissing Okonkwo.

Okonkwo was the company’s general manager, Special Duties.

The letter reads: “After servicing TCN for a period of about six years, please be informed that your political posting lapsed by June 11, 2018 and you should have ceased from coming to work from June 12, 2018. Consequently, you are to stop coming to work with immediate effect.”
