As the Federal Government continue its discussions with organised labour over the hike in electricity tariff, the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC has announced the extension of the new tariff hike by one week.
Chairman of the electricity commission, Mr James Momoh confirmed the extension on Monday when the ad-hoc technical committee on Electricity Tariff submitted its interim report at a bilateral meeting between the Federal Government and the organised labour.
He explained that the one week extension was to enable the committee review and work out modalities for the implementation of the agreement reached on the electricity tariff structure.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said that the adoption of the work plan to effect the resolutions has been reached and would be implemented by all stakeholders on Sunday October 18, 2020.
