Electricity Distribution Company Threaten Blackout Over Retrenchments

Senior Staff of the Port-Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company have threatened a total blackout in four state of Rivers,Bayelsa, Cross River and Akwa Ibom.

This followed the industrial dispute that led to the alleged sacking of 60 workers of the electricity company.

A resolution by the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies Union, insisted that the retrenchment did not follow due process.

The Assistant General Secretary of the association, Innocent Douglas, while speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt on Thursday, said the sacking affected workers in the four states.

Douglas stated that the association had demanded that the company reverse its decision or face an industrial action .

Efforts to get the response of the PHED’ s acting Manager , Corporate Communications, Chioma Aninwe, proved abortive , as she did not respond to calls and a text message sent to her phone.
