Three days after Nigeria Labour Congress (APC) and Federal Government of Nigeria agreed on suspension of new tariff increase, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) ordered the 11 Electricity Distribution Companies (DISCOs) to suspend the tariff increase for 14 days.
The Federal Government agreed that the recent review in electricity tariffs would be suspended by the commission for a period of 14 days to further consultations and finalization of negotiations between the parties.
The order by NERC said that from Sept 28 to Oct 11 the DisCos must revert all charges to the tariff existing as of Aug 31.
“This means that for the next two weeks, electricity consumers having power above 12 hours who were affected by the over 100 percent tariff hike would revert to their old charges.
