Labour Urges For Electricity Tariff Be Reversed To N66/kWh


Nigerian labor organisations, such as the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), oppose the Government’s proposal to lower electricity costs for specific consumers. Instead of the suggested N206.8/kWh, they insist on a tariff of N66/kWh, bringing prices back to what they were before.


Earlier, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had agreed to increase prices for Band A customers to N225/kWh. But the labour groups believe this increase is unfair. They’re pushing for a return to the previous lower rate of N66/kWh.


Despite NERC’s explanation about economic changes and a slight reduction to N206.8/kWh for Band A customers, NLC and TUC remain firm on their demand for the original lower rate.


Concerned citizens have prompted the House of Representatives to demand that the tariff hike be put on hold and to request that NERC look into the issue more thoroughly.
