Kaduna Electric, on Sunday said that the power outage being experienced in the State was due to the industrial action embarked upon by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).

This was expressed in a statement by Head of Corporate Communication, Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Abdullahi.

According to the statement, “the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN has knocked off all our 33KV lines in Kaduna State.”

Alhaji Abdul-Azeez further appealed to all communities, security agencies and vigilante groups to be vigilant so that men of the underworld would not take the advantage of the situation to vandalise power supply installations.

The statement reads: “Any suspicious movement around distribution sub-stations (transformers) should be reported to the relevant security agency.

“We have the collective responsibility to protect these critical national assets in our neighbourhood.

“We once again appeal to both parties in the dispute to strive at an amicable resolution for normalcy to return, the statement declared.”

So far no fewer than 15 unions have indicated their interest to join the strike in solidarity with the Kaduna workers.

Saga Gist recalls that five days ago, the National leadership of the electricity union had directed its members to withdraw its services based on the directives of the Congress.
