The National Union of Electricity Employees stated the nationwide grid has been restored after the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress suspended their strike.

NUEE National President, Adebiyi Adeyeye, confirmed this to PUNCH Online in an interview on Tuesday.

“The strike has been suspended, which means the grid has come back to normal. It is on already,” Adeyeye advised our correspondent over the telephone.

The PUNCH reported earlier that organised labour on Monday started a nationwide strike over the Federal Government’s refusal to lift the proposed minimal wage from N60,000 and reverse the Band A tariff to N65 per kilowatt-hour as an alternative of N206/KWh.

In compliance, the electrical energy employees swung into motion by shutting down the nationwide grid, plunging the nation into darkness within the early hours of Monday.

In an announcement on Monday, the Transmission Company of Nigeria stated its employees on obligation have been overwhelmed and wounded by union leaders who stormed its places of work to ship them out.

But Adeyeye debunked the allegation, saying the union solely withdrew its members in compliance with the directive of the organised labour.

The organised labour has suspended the strike for 5 days to renew negotiations with the Federal Government on a minimal wage that’s above N60,000.

Our correspondent noticed that the grid has but to be totally restored on the time of submitting this report.
