KADUNA IN TOTAL BLACKOUT AS LABOUR UNION BEGINS STRIKE
The current total power blackout in Kaduna State was due to the ongoing five-day warning strike embarked by labour unions in the state. Said the management of Kaduna electricity.
Abdulazeez Abdullahi, Head of Corporate Communication of the company made the announcement in a statement issued on Sunday in Kaduna. He said;
“In compliance with the NLC directive, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN has knocked off all our 33KV lines in Kaduna State.
“Consequently, we are appealing to all communities, security agencies and vigilante groups to be vigilant so that men of the underworld will not cash in on the situation to vandalise power supply installations.”
“Any suspicious movement around distribution substations (transformers) should be reported to the relevant security agency”.
He also stated that it is the collective responsibility of citizens to protect critical national assets in their neighborhood.
Abdullahi added that the company appeals to both labour unions and Kaduna State Government “to strive at an amicable resolution for normalcy to return”.
