Although the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) has suspended its strike action which it embarked upon on Wednesday, Nigerians have continued to express their displeasure at the blackout being experienced in the country.
The NUEE embarked on the strike action in order to call for the settlement of unresolved claims after the privatization of the power sector by the Bureau of Public Enterprises.
The electricity workers said the strike became important to draw the federal government’s attention to the plight of its members.

Everyone is shouting Nepa, PHCN and #Blackout up and down, but the truth I that if Nepa didn’t announce that they were going on strike, we won’t have even known. It will just be like the regular light blackouts we experience regularly.

Government didn’t pay NEPA abi PHCN money and they decided to punish the whole nation that have done their own parts.
The Govt that are either not around or using steady inverters are not even suffering the punishment with us.
