FG Increases Electricity Tariff For Band A Customers

The Federal Government has jacked up the electricity tariff for Band A customers.

Band A are those who enjoy electricity supply for 20 hours per day.

At a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, Musliu Oseni, Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), said the increase will see customers pay ₦225 kilowatts per hour, up from the current ₦66.

Oseni said these customers represent 15 percent of the 12 million electricity customers in the country.

He added that the commission had also downgraded some customers on Band A to B And B due to non-fulfilment of the required hours of electricity provided by the electricity distribution company.
