Oshiomhole, Nnaji crave workers’ support for power sector reform

EDO State Governor Adams Oshiomhole yesterday in Benin looked labour leaders straight into the eyes and asked them to support President Goodluck Jonathan’s reform in the power sector, saying it is the only option left to make the country work. “I support privatisation; I support the reform,” Oshiomhole declared to a stunned audience of union officials who were participating in the 9th Delegates Conference of the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) in Benin, the Edo State capital.

Oshiomhole who declared the event opened, said: “Nigeria is at the threshold of total economic collapse and certainly the nation cannot continue with business as usual. But as long as we continue to have this culture of impunity where people steal and go free, our economy will remain in danger, those in power covered by immunity must be brought to justice when they leave power once they are found to have mismanaged public fund.” The governor asked his erstwhile trade union colleagues to think through their current opposition to the reform and adopt a strategy that will benefit workers of PHCN and the Nigerian people.
