Reverse electricity sector privatisation , Labour tells Buhari

As Nigeria celebrated Democracy Day last week, organised labour restated the call for the reversal of the privatisation of the power sector.

The United Labour Congress (ULC), reacting to President Muhammad Buhari’s speech on Democracy Day, said the power sector has failed Nigerians.

President of the ULC, Joe Ajaero, said the congress restates for the umpteen times that the power sector privatisation has failed not just Nigerians but Nigeria as a nation.

“It has been a harvest of woes. The United Kingdom has done the needful with their railways on seeing the woes the sector was bringing to the nation, the government has started reversing the privatisation of that sector. Nigerian government should emulate this and do the most sensible thing at this time by mustering the needed courage to reverse the nation’s electricity sector privatisation”, he said.
