Former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has responded to the increment in electricity tariff.
Atiku, who made his reaction known via his social media page blasted the federal government, as he advised them Nigerians need stimulus and not increment of electricity tariff.
In a tweet, the former Vice President described the increment as ill-advised.
“I reject the increased electricity tariffs. Coming out of the lockdown, Nigerians need a stimulus, not an impetuous disregard for the challenges they face.
“Many Nigerians have not earned an income for months, due to no fault of theirs. This increase is ill-timed and ill-advised,” Atiku tweeted.
It could be recalled that the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had approved the Multi Year Tariff Order 2020.
