A power outage hit the federal capital territory and its environment on Tuesday as workers shut down the power supply over the Nigeria Labour Congress Two-day warning strike.

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company disclosed this on Tuesday in a notice to customers through its X handle.

The DisCo said: We are aware of the general power outage being experienced across our franchise due to the enforcement by NLC of the 2-day warning strike embarked upon by the labour union.

“We apologize for any inconvenience you may be experiencing as a result of this, as we continue our engagement with key stakeholders towards minimizing the strike’s impact on our customers”, the notice partly reads.

Recall that NLC announced a two-day warning strike over the hardship occasioned by fuel subsidies removal, among other demands.

However, efforts by the federal government to halt the strike have yet to yield results.

Some states nationwide are observing NLC’s strike action.
