According to the union president, the hike in electricity tariff and fuel price had eroded the purchasing capacity of the Nigerian worker.

Further noting that the initial plan was to make sure that the electricity tariff until meters were provided to Nigerians, Wabba revealed that there was a valid court judgment nullifying the electricity tariff.

The union leader further revealed that the injunction of the National Industrial Court asking NLC to stop its planned strike held no waters.
