Atiku Abubakar believes tariff increase could come at a more convenient time
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the recent increase in electricity tariffs by distribution companies across Nigeria.
“I reject the increased electricity tariffs. Coming out of the lock-down, Nigerians need a stimulus, not an impetuous disregard for the challenges they face,” the Presidential candidate of the main opposition party in the 2019 presidential election tweeted on Monday.
Atiku’s comments follow the commencement of the implementation of the increase in electricity tariff by almost 300 per cent by electricity distribution companies across Nigeria.
“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.
This post by Atiku Bubakar did not however sit well with some people who think that he did nothing better when he was in office.
