The National Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) has been ordered by the House of Representatives to suspend the planned increase in electricity tariff.
This directive was given by the house of representatives committee on power.
Bittertruth Media recalls that NERC had directed the electricity distribution companies (DisCos) to enforce an upward review of the tariff starting from April 1.
However, the committee chairman, Hon.Aliyu Magaji at its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, asked NERC to issue a directive suspending the upward review pending proper consultations on the matter.
This will surely serve as a sign of relief to Nigerians who would have suffered the brunt of such increase.
