Nigeria Labour Congress calls for immediate reversal of the privatization of the power sector
Written by News Room on December 20, 2021
Nigeria Labour Congress on Friday called for an immediate reversal of the privatization of the power sector, insisting that its original purpose has been defeated.
NLC President, Mr. Ayuba Wabba made the call at the union’s National Executive Committee meeting in Abuja.
According to Wabba, NLC made clearly its position known that the privatization of the power sector has failed, before the privatization, adding that a lot of promises had been made that power was going to be affordable, stable, and that there will be no challenge, but that five years down the line, nothing has improved.
Therefore, NLC is demanding that the privatization of the power sector should absolutely be reversed because it has not actually provided any headway into addressing the challenge that was very evident before the privatization process.
The NLC also decried the delay in signing the Electoral Amendment Bill 2021 into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, with today being the last day for him to do, so as required by law.
