NLC Voices Concerns Over Proposed Electricity Tariff Hike Amidst Economic Hardship

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has raised alarm over the proposed 300% increase in electricity tariffs, cautioning against its implementation amidst the current economic challenges facing Nigerians.

With rising food prices and widespread hunger, the NLC warns that such a hike would exacerbate the hardship experienced by citizens.

Acting Deputy General Secretary of the NLC, Comrade Ismail Bello, emphasized the need for the government to prioritize addressing immediate needs rather than imposing additional financial burdens on the populace.

The NLC’s stance reflects a broader call for social responsibility and consideration for the welfare of the Nigerian people during these challenging times.
