Written by on September 4, 2020

A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has criticised the Federal Government over the increased electricity tariff; describing the development as ill-timed and ill-advised.

Atiku made his reservations known on the development on Thursday, September 3, 2020.

Equally important, Atiku who was the Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 polls; took to his verified handle on the micro-blogging site, Twitter to condemn the tariff hike.

‘‘I reject the increased electricity tariffs. Coming out of the lockdown, Nigerians need a stimulus, not an impetuous disregard for the challenges they face. Many Nigerians have not earned an income for months, due to no fault of theirs. This increase is ill-timed and ill-advised,’’
