share close

The Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, has said the decision of the federal government to increase electricity tariff by 300 percent was not only insensitive but demonstrated a blatant disregard for the plight of the citizens.
The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Muhammed Ishaq in a statement issued Wednesday said the policy would result in the power companies raising prices of electricity from N68 to N200 per kilowatt-hour.

The PRP, therefore, called on the government to reconsider this decision and prioritise the well-being of its citizens.
It also urged the authorities to explore alternative solutions that would not further exacerbate the suffering of Nigerians.
