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

Atiku, who slammed the federal government, said Nigerians need stimulus and not increment of electricity tariff.

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.
