Come out and lead the protest, Nigerians troll Atiku Abubakar over fuel price rejection post
Nigerians on Twitter have called on the former Vice President and PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to lead them in the protest against the increase in electricity tariff.
Atiku had reacted to the recent increase on electricity and fuel pump price by the federal government.
On Tuesday, September 1, the electricity distribution companies (DisCos)across the country began the implementation of a new electricity tariff regime which will see Nigerians paying more for electricity. The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had ordered the DisCos to maintain a N4 tariff for all customers consuming less than 50kWh of energy per month.
According to the PDP aspirant, the increment is ill-advised and ill-timed.
”I reject the increased electricity tariffs. Coming out of the lockdown, Nigerians need a stimulus, not an impetuous disregard for the challenges they face. Many Nigerians have not earned an income for months, due to no fault of theirs. This increase is ill-timed and ill-advised.” he tweeted
However, Nigerians took to the comment section of Atiku’s post to ask him to come out and lead a protest if he is indeed against the increment. See tweets below
