The House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Power, to suspend the plan to upwardly review electricity tariff until the National Assembly lifts the embargo.

The House Committee on Power, which met with the ministry, the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission and distribution companies in Abuja on Tuesday, asked that the policy, scheduled for implementation effective April 1, 2019, remain on hold until the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, concludes his engagements with the critical stakeholders.
