Electricity tariffs won’t be increased in Nigeria unless DisCos improve operations – Minister

Mr Mamman was reacting to an announcement by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) that tariff increase that was to commence on April 1 had been postponed.

Many Nigerians have condemned the tariff increase, saying it would mean paying more for darkness as the electricity situation has not improved. The DisCos have, however, argued that the current tariff plan is not viable to sustain their operations.

In his statement Tuesday evening, Mr Mamman said President Muhammadu Buhari approved that the postponement of the increase should be for three months. Even then, the tariff increase will not commence unless the DisCos improve their operations, he said.
