Nigeria’s electricity workers have suspended a strike that threw the whole nation into darkness for a little more than 24 hours.
The workers in the electricity industry went on a strike, which disrupted electricity supply nationwide, following the expiration of their 21-day ultimatum to the federal government.
The workers had given the 21-day ultimatum for the government and management of other players in the electricity sector to address their grievances over non-payment of salary arrears, remittance of pension deductions and retrenchment of staff or else they would plunge the nation into darkness.
