Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company has resumed operation after a temporal sealed by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), protesting the recent increment in electricity tariff.

‪The premises of the company is also being guarded by a detachment of police personnel to foretell any breakdown of law and order.  The staff of the company are seeing going about their normal activities.

One of the officials of NLC, Mallam Shehu Mohammed had said that they sealed the gates of the company in order to press home for the reserve of the old tariff for Nigerians to be able to pay light bills regularly.

"This protest will continue so long as the government refused to listen to the cry of Nigerians because this is not the change we voted for. We believe as workers and citizens of this country that President Mohammadu Buhari has a listening ear to the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians towards ensuring a better environment for people to live in," he said.

‪But a statement signed by the head of corporation communication department of the company, Abdulaziz Abdullahi, the Managing Director/CEO, Kaduna Electric, Engineer Garba Haruna, called on the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union congress to stop the picketing of distribution companies as the nation cannot afford any disruption to power for now.
