Members of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) have withdrawn their services at the Kaduna Regional Headquarters of the Transmission Company of Nigeria(TCN) in line with the directive of the union’s national leadership.

The TCN Kaduna Regional station covers four northwestern states, Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara.

On Wednesday morning, NUEE officials picketed the Mando TCN Station in the Kaduna state capital, shutting down operations, and thereafter, forced workers out of the company’s premises before locking the gate with their own key.
