Electricity consumers won’t accept tariff hike, NLC warns

    The Nigeria Labour Congress on Monday said consumers across the country would not comply with the payment of electricity bill should the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission go ahead with the proposed increase in the tariff payable by power users.

    It also warned NERC not to succumb to the pressure mounted on the commission by power firms that had been calling for an increase in electricity tariff.

    The President, NLC,  Ayuba Wabba, who disclosed this while speaking at the public consultation on capping of estimated billing, organised by NERC in Abuja, noted that many rich consumers were no more receiving supply from electricity distribution companies’ because of high tariff.

    He wondered how low-income earners would cope, much more when the NERC implemented an increase in tariff, as he cautioned the commission not to make laws that consumers would violate with impunity.
