Senate Asks NERC To Suspend Electricity Tariff Increase

senateThe leadership of Senate has directed the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission(NERC) to immediately suspend the 45% increase in electricity tariff.

According to the senate president, Bukola Saraki, the increment is unacceptable without the necessary improvement in service delivery.

“This move is necessary because any increase in cost, without the necessary improvement in service delivery by the power companies is unacceptable.

“Furthermore, the power distribution companies must work to ensure that every establishment in Nigeria is provided with capabilities for metered billing. Doing this would end the sharp practice of arbitrary billing, which estimates the power consumption of Nigerians in the generation of their monthly bills.

-Kamar Buhari
