The House of Representatives has summoned the Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman, and his Labour and Employment counterpart, Chris Ngige, to explain why nothing was done regarding the 21 days ultimatum given by Electricity Workers Union over unpaid benefits to disengaged employees of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), as well as improved condition of services by their current employers.

The Union had issued a 21-day ultimatum warning both government and employers to address their grievances or face total blackout in the power sector.

Consequently, the House of Representatives’ Speaker, Femi Gabajabiamila, in his response to a motion on matters of urgent public importance brought by Rep. Toby Okechukwu noted that the 21 days ultimatum given by the Union expires today.

He, therefore, moved for an amendment to the prayers saying that the Ministers of Power, Labour and Employment, as well as Director-General of the National Pension Commission (PenCom), be made to appear before the House on Thursday by 2:pm.
