Nigerians Ask Atiku To Lead Protest Over Hike In Electricity Tariff

Nigerians Ask Atiku To Lead Protest Over Hike In Electricity Tariff (Updated: 2 years ago)


Some Nigerians on Twitter have called on former Vice President and PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to lead them in the protest against the increase in electricity tariff.

On Tuesday, September 1, the electricity distribution companies (DisCos) across the country began the implementation of a new electricity tariff regime which will see Nigerians paying more for electricity.

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had ordered the DisCos to maintain a N4 tariff for all customers consuming less than 50kWh of energy per month.

Atiku Abubakar via his Twitter handle, joined other Nigerians to condemn the increment.

According to him, the increment is ill-advised and ill-timed.

”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 tweeted

Read Nigerians Reactions on Twitter:

@9jamuncher – We are waiting for you in 2023 to reverse this negative pandemic of a government.

@Atiku means jobs and economic prosperity. You are a business man and you know what it means to run a business in Nigeria

@henryshield – Dear H. E. @atiku , come out and lead Nigerians in a nationwide protest!

@heights2020 – Everyone of us can lead a protest, it’s a collective responsibility of all, @ this junction they don’t need to tell us what to do if we’re actually serious and ready to witness & experience the betterments we’re all craving for!

@noaholatunde- Dear Atiku sir

I urge you to come out along with CUPP members, religious, labour leaders, Civil society, suffering masses to protest this abysmally fascist & totalitarian policy of this regime.

This govt is consolidating poverty & hardship
Thank you!!!
