Masterweb Reports - Friday, July 20, 2012: The Power Holding Company of Nigeria nationwide is under lock and key over Nigerian Army’s action of sealing their offices in Abuja, sources said on Friday.

The action was taken because of the PHCN anticipated workers' strike action, to protest the Federal Government's plan to privatise the PHCN.

In a telephone conversation with one of the junior staff of PHCN (name withheld), source told Master Web reporter that the negotiations between the union and the government has dragged on for so long due to the inability to agree on basic issues in line with the condition of service of employment. Stating that, one of the basic issues is that the PHCN want the federal government to pay them their 50% increment on workers salary before the commencement of PHCN privatisation by the federal government.

Dee Purposeit is a fact that sometimes, the actitude of PHCN workers is worisome but, the fed govt of Nigeria still need to respect their right under the law that govern us. The issue of inviting Nigerian army to seal up PHCN office is babaric and unlawful. Rathe, government should embark on meaniful agreement with the workers, give them what they want. Also, the phcn should improve on their service to enable them have nigerians backing in time issues like this. God Bless Nigeria.
