The Senate has urged the Federal Government to halt the proposed electricity tariffs by the Distribution companies.
It also urged the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to decentralize the proposed scheduled stakeholders meeting to the six Geo political Zones.
These resolutions were taken after the lawmakers deliberated on a motion sponsored by Senator Yunus Akintunde Representing Oyo Central.
In a lead debate, Senator Akintunde explained that huge sums of money were spent by senators across the country in the procurement and installation of transformers, through their Zonal intervention Projects, which are yet to be energized by the Disco.
Senator Akintunde was worried that despite an increase in Tariff before now, there has not been any improvement in their service delivery.
The motion enjoyed unanimous support of the Senate.
The lawmakers thereby urged the Discos to discontinue estimated billing and make prepaid meters available at affordable prices.
Similarly, the Upper chamber urged Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to explore alternative measures to address the financial challenges by the Discos, and look into the review application filed by the Discos considering the interest of the citizens. FRCN
