Major General Buhari

On Wednesday this week, The Punch published an editorial that revealed its stand against President Buhari’s administration.

The beginning of the editorial read; β€œAs a symbolic demonstration of our protest against autocracy and military-style repression, PUNCH (all our print newspapers, The PUNCH, Saturday PUNCH, Sunday PUNCH, PUNCH Sports Extra, and digital platforms, most especially Punchng.com) will henceforth prefix Buhari’s name with his rank as a military dictator in the 80s, Major General, and refer to his administration as a regime, until they purge themselves of their insufferable contempt for the rule of law.”

Other publications joined in to take a stand.

Black out in Nigeria

While Nigerians were discussing The Punch‘s stance, the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) embarked on a nationwide strike on Wednesday shutting down the offices of distribution companies across the country. The union’s strike was aimed at putting an end to the ill treatment of its members.

“President of the NUEE, Joe Ajaero, had, in a statement, accused the Bureau of Public Enterprise of failing to address and pay up over 2,000 disengaged workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria since 2013,” a report by The Punch reads.

This led to a blackout across Nigeria.
