House of Representatives Minority Cautions NERC Against Electricty Tariff Increase

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives has cautioned the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) against increasing electricity tariff in the country.
The Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu who made this known in a statement issued to newsmen in Abuja, insisted that Nigerians are currently passing through grave economic stress and anything that would aggravate the situation, such as an increase in electricity tariff, is completely unacceptable.
Elumelu, however, directed all members of the minority caucus in relevant committees to intensify their oversight functions in this direction in the interest of Nigerians.
Meanwhile, the minority leader assured that he will continue to protect the interest of Nigerians while urging NERC to seek ways of making power affordable to Nigerians
