Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar Rejects Increased Electricity Tariffs

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has aired his displeasure at the newly increased electricity tariffs.

He disclosed this via his official Twitter account @atiku on Thursday.

According to him, the increase in electricity tariff is “ill-timed” and disregard for the challenges faced by Nigerians. However, he suggested that Nigerians need a stimulus after coming out of a pandemic.

Atiku wrote; ”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.”
