Electricity Tariff: Increase no guarantee DISCOS will stop nefarious practice- Gbajabiamila
Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila

Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, says proposed increase in electricity tariff, is not a guarantee that DISCOS will stop the nefarious practice of bills estimation or provide uninterrupted power supply.

  

 

A statement obtained by Fresh Angle International this afternoon from the Speaker’s twitter handle, indicates that the National Assembly, would ensure any increase in electricity tariff if at all, should be cost-reflective and not just a whimsical increase with no empirical basis.

 

 

Hon. Gbajabiamila, averred: “There is no guarantee that after any electricity tariff hike the Discos will not continue with the nefarious practice of bills estimation or provide uninterrupted power supply.

 

“I believe National Assembly should ensure that any increase in electricity tariff if at all should be cost-reflective and not just a whimsical increase with no empirical basis.

 

“Also, any such increase should only be made after the proposed amendment to the law criminalizing estimated billing is signed into law. I intend to meet and discuss this sequence and other conditions with the Attorney General of the Federation and other relevant authorities.”
