The Management of Kaduna Electric says that the absence of electricity currently being experienced in the state is as a result of the industrial action embarked upon by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

According to a statement Sunday, by Abdulazeez Abdullahi, the company’s head of Corporate Communication, said: “This is in compliance with the NLC directive, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN has knocked off all our 33KV lines in Kaduna State.”

The statement appealed to all communities, security agencies and vigilante groups to be vigilant so that men of underworld will not cash in on the situation to vandalise power supply installations, adding that any suspicious movement around distribution sub-stations (transformers) should be reported to the relevant security agency.

“We have the collective responsibility to protect these critical national assets in our neighborhood.

“We once again appeal to both parties in the dispute to strive at an amicable resolution for normalcy to return,” the statement further stated.
