After meeting with Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) have suspended their industrial strike action after an emergency meeting.
The development is coming hours after they shut down power across the country.
The workers had on August 15 directed its members to picket TCN offices nationwide after which they would embark on strike on August 17.
The General Secretary, NUEE, Mr Joe Ajaero, had in a statement said the picketing was to protest the directive by the TCN board that all Principal Managers in acting capacity going to Acting General Manager must appear for a promotion interview.
But the Managing Director, TCN, Dr Sule Abdulaziz, appealed to the union to suspend the strike.
