Members of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), across the country have stormed various offices of electricity distribution companies to protest over the Band A tariff hike.

The protesters were seen blocking the entrance to the offices of various companies in the early hours of today, preventing workers from resuming work for the day.

In Lagos state, the workers were sighted at the corporate headquarters of the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company, singing and calling for the reversal of the Band A tariff.

In Oyo state, protesters stormed the office of the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, picketing the same.

Report says that security operatives were on standby to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

The NLC and TUC has given the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the revised tariff.

The Federal Government has however urged Nigerians to bear the pains caused by the hike in electricity tariff saying the reversal of the tariff would spell doom for the power sector.
