NIGERIA is now experiencing a near total collapse of power supply in the country as a result of shoddy arrangements before the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, facilities were handed over to new owners.
One week after the hand-over, many of the facilities have been left unattended to as many of the workers have been sacked.
To worsen the situation, some of the workers that are yet to be paid their severance benefits were also alleged to be disengaged indiscriminately.
In Lagos and other parts of the country, erratic power supply now persists.
For instance, in Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company, the fate of workers hangs in the balance as they have been kept in the dark on their true position in the new dispensation.
