Electricity hike: Labour Union blasts FG .

 The Nigerian government has been tagged a betrayer. This is the position of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).


 The union was reacting to the recent hike in electricity tariff approved by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, Channels TV reports. This is contained in a statement signed by TUC president, Comrade Quadri A. Olaleye. 

He said the FG effected the hike despite the fact negotiations were still ongoing with organised labour over the last increase. 

Olaleye accused the government of making unfriendly policies. Going further, he questioned the creative acumen of those in power. 

The report which emanated on Tuesday, January 5, stated that the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) approved over 50% hike in electricity tariff payable by customers of the 11 distribution companies (Discos).
