BREAKING: Halt electricity tariff increase, Reps Panel tells NERC

The House of Representatives Committee on Power has directed the National Electricity Regulatory
Commission (NERC) to halt the recently announced increase in electricity tariffs in the country.

NERC had informed the electricity distribution companies (DisCos) to enforce an upward review of the tariff starting from April 1st, 2020.

But Committee chairman, Aliyu Magaji, at its meeting, asked NERC to tell DisCos to suspend the upward review in tariffs until further notice.
