#WordOnTheStreet: Nigerians react to proposed hike in electricity tariff



The Nigerian Senate has ordered the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to suspend the proposed electricity tariff hike. The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission had last year planned to increased electricity tariff, while removing fixed charges for all consumers. While the  Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) said  that increase in tariff will enhance service delivery and customers’ satisfaction, a large number of consumers, especially manufacturers, are calling on the Federal Government to provide prepaid meters for the people as a matter of urgency.

WordOnTheStreet got speaking to Nigerians and it’s interesting what their reactions are.
