‘Call For Increase In Electricity Tariff, Unjustifiable’ – NLC

Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Yobe, Alhaji Lawan Ibrahim, has described as ‘unjustifiable’ the call for increase in electricity tariff by the Yola Electricity Distribution Company (Yola Disco)

Speaking on Saturday in Damaturu at a consultation forum with consumers,the chairman noted that even the current tariff needed to be reviewed downward.

He advised the company to place emphasis on the provision of prepaid meters to customers, instead of advocating for increase in tariff.

According to him, the prepaid meters will enable customers pay for exactly what they consume.

Earlier in his remark at the forum, the Yola Disco Company Secretary and Head of Regulatory Affairs, Alhaji Bala Mohammed, had advocated for an upward review of electricity tariff.
