Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has faulted the decision of the Federal Government to increase electricity tariff; describing the development as ill-timed and ill-advised.
Atiku made his reservations known on the development on Thursday, September 3, 2020, via his verified handle on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
‘‘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,’’ Atiku had tweeted to his three million followers.
