Aggrieved disengaged workers of the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company have called on President Muhammadu Buhari led government to review the privatisation of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) by the immediate past Goodluck Jonathan administration.

The workers, under the umbrella of National Union of Electricity Employees, (NUEE), alleged that the privatisation project was fraught with irregularities and urged the Federal Government to revisit the exercise.

Addressing the aggrieved workers of the company on Saturday in Kaduna, North-West Nigeria, Vice President of the union, Sikamta Ali criticised the management of Kaduna Electricity of stopping workers from participating in union activities and introducing casualisation policy as against the Nigerian labour laws.

The workers also argued that if after many months, privatisation of electricity in the country had failed to bring positive impact to electricity consumers, then there was a need for President Buhari to revisit the programme.

They called on the management of Kaduna Electric to recall over one thousand staff that were disengaged last month, and to also allow workers participate in union activities.

Spokesman for Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company, Abdulaziz Abdullahi, said the casual workers were inherited from the former PHCN, with some of them are now fully employed in its workforce. (Channels TV)
