Electricity tariff to increase on April 1

NEWSCASTARS.COM have learnt that Nigerians will from Wednesday, April 1, 2020, pay more for electricity.

Recall that the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission had in its December 2019 Minor Review of Multi-Year Tariff Order 2015 and Minimum Remittance Order for the Year 2020 said there will be an increase in electricity bills.

Despite the lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan seems to be on as NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that a top source at Ikeja Electric told The PUNCH that the firm had not received any directive from NERC as regards reversal of the plan.

He said, “According to the tariff order for the year, we are supposed to increase on April 1, 2020. So far, we have not received any directive not to go ahead.”
