A former lawmaker, Shehu Sani has aired his opinion on the recent announcements made by the Federal Government on the increase of electricity tariffs.

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC, on Wednesday gave the go-ahead to raise the electricity rates for customers in the Band A category.

During a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, the Vice Chairman of NERC, Musliu Oseni, announced that there will be a rise in electricity tariffs.

This adjustment will result in customers paying N225 per kilowatt-hour, up from the current rate of N66.

Sani, a former lawmaker, who represented Kaduna central district in the 8th assembly, said the increase would further reduce the living standard of Nigerians and kill businesses.

“Increasing electricity tariffs by 300% will finally electrocute human lives and businesses in the country,” he wrote on X.
