Nigerians are suffering – Nigerian govt told to reconsider electricity tariff hike

Written by on April 7, 2024

The Labour Party (LP) on Saturday called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to reconsider its decision to hike the tariff payable by some electricity consumers in the country.

Mrs Olubunmi Odesanya, Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the party, made the call in an interview with NAN in Lagos.

Adesanya described the “astronomical” increase in tariff as unreasonable, adding that a good number of Nigerians are suffering.

She added that if the government had reason to hike tariffs at all, the increase should not be more than 25 per cent.

“On a daily basis, Nigerians are bearing the brunt. This is simply not working. A good number of Nigerians are suffering.

“Nigerians are currently facing hardship. The government should know that people are at the heart of every government.

“This astronomical increase in electricity tariff should be reconsidered,” Odesanya said.

She urged the federal government to reduce the cost of governance in order to save funds, rather than removing subsidies.
