Four states with the inclusion of Rivers who are under the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Plc may be plunged into darkness following the sack of 60 workers of the electricity company.

This comes after the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies Union complained that the dismissal of staff didn't follow the due process.

According to Today.ng, the other three states are Bayelsa, Cross River, and Akwa Ibom.

Speaking to Journalists in Port Harcourt Thursday, the Assistant General Secretary of the Association, Innocent Douglas said the dismissal of the workers will affect the four states.

He said, “It is injurious to labour. We don’t accept what is happening. This is mass sacking; sacking of over 60 persons at a time. Mass sacking is against the labour movement.”

Douglas said the association had demanded that the company reverse its decision or face industrial action, Today.ng said.

PHED’s acting Manager, Corporate Communications, Chioma Aninwe unavailable to respond to their dismissal.
