Electricity tariff: Atiku blasts Buhari govt, tells President what Nigerians need

Atiku has blasted Buhari government over electricity tariff hike.

Former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the increment in electricity tariff across board.

Atiku, who openly berated the federal government, said Nigerians need stimulus and not  electricity tariff increase.

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.

Recall that the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had approved the Multi Year Tariff Order 2020.
