Nigerian electricity workers under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE, threatened to shut down the power sector over alleged refusal of the Minister of Power,  Saleh Mamman, to go into self-isolation after his return from Germany and Egypt.

The union also warned other employers in the sector that it would withdraw services if they failed to provide adequate precautionary measures to protect staff in the sector against COVID-19.

The General Secretary of the union, Joe Ajaero, who said  this added that the minister would be held responsible if any employee of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, especially those at the headquarters in Abuja contracted the coronavirus.

When contacted to speak on claims by the electricity union that Mamman might spread the coronavirus to workers at his ministry, the Special Assistant to the Minister of Power on Communications, Aaron Artimas, said his boss had not been in office.

He said, “He has not made contact with any member of staff and has not seen anybody in the ministry, either his own direct staff or outsiders. He has also not received visitors.”
