Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar who ran against Buhari in the 2019 elections has rejected the new increased electricity tariffs in Nigeria.
Recall Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari approved electricity tariff increase in the country which took effect from September 1st, 2020.
Reacting to the new increment Atiku said: “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,” he added.
