Atiku Abubakar rejects hike in electricity tariffs

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has rejected the hike in electricity tariffs by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku, on Thursday said he outrightly rejected the increased electricity tariffs, especially as the nation was just coming out of lockdown.

The Federal Government, on Wednesday increased electricity tariffs from N30.23 per kwh to over N66 per kwh

According to him, what Nigerians needed right now was a stimulus, not impetuous disregard for the challenges they faced.

He said many Nigerians had not earned income for months due to no fault of theirs.

Atiku stated that the increase was ill-timed and ill-advised.

“Many Nigerians have not earned an income for months, due to no fault of theirs. This increase is ill-timed and ill-advised.‬”
