Electricity Tariff Hike

On Wednesday, The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, has disclosed it’s willingness to suspend electricity tariff hike for two weeks.

This is coming after the Federal Government and the organised Labour reached an agreement over the increase in pump price of petrol Sunday night.

NERC Tuesday night handed the order to the 11 electricity Distribution Companies, DISCOs, in the country to suspend the recent hike in tariff.

The suspension of the tariff is expected to run for 14 days to enable wider consultations between the Government and labour with a view to reaching a compromise and resolution of the contending issues involved.
