Ahead of the May 17 commencement of warning strike in Kaduna State as ordered by the NIgeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Transmission Company of NIgeria (TCN) has cut power supply to the state.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Head, Corporate Communication, Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company, Abdulazeez Abdullahi, dated May 16, 2021.
“The Management of Kaduna Electric regrets to inform its customers in Kaduna State that the service interruption currently being experienced in the state is as a result of the industrial action embarked upon by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC).
“In compliance with the NLC directive, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN has knocked off all our 33KV lines in Kaduna State,” it said.
Kaduna Electric appealed to all communities, security agencies and vigilante groups to be vigilant so that men of underworld will not cash in on the situation to vandalise power supply installations.
“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 neighborhood.
“We once again appeal to both parties in the dispute to strive at an amicable resolution for normalcy to return,” the statement said.
