The Trade Union Congress (TUC) has urged the Federal Government to reverse the privatisation of all the electricity distribution companies (DISCOs) in the country.
Speaking during a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House in Abuja yesterday, TUC President Bobboi Kaigama alleged that DISCOs operators lacked the will, capacity and competence to invest in the sector.
He said the sole aim of the electricity distribution companies as “profiteering through fraud.”
Kaigama described the recent increase in electricity tariff as anti-people and the Act establishing the Nigerian Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC) as “very lame, too simplistic and misleading.”
According to him, the National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Act 2011 will be five years old in March, and in recognition of the International Labour Organisation’s Minimum Wage Fixing Convention 131 of 1970 an ad hoc committee ought to be raised every five years for a review.
