Two former federal lawmakers, Senator Andrew Uchendu and Honourable Dachung Bagos, have faulted the Federal Government’s reduction of electricity subsidy. They argued that the timing was wrong.

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission had on Wednesday, announced an increment in electricity tariff for Band A customers. It explained that these are people who enjoy a 20-hour supply of electricity daily.

But the ex-lawmakers who were guests on a television programme said with the removal of subsidy on petroleum, the timing of the electricity tariff hike would further compound Nigerians’ hardship.
