CSOs Plan Protest Against Minister Over Electricity Tariff Hike

Civil Society Organisations under the Forum for Good Governance in Nigeria (FGGN) announced plans to protest against Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, for insisting on increasing electricity tariffs despite economic challenges.

In a statement jointly signed by the National Coordinator and Secretary of the group, Abraham Douglas and Bala Galadima Ikara, the group criticized the Minister’s stance as insensitive and called for measures to improve power supply to attract investors rather than tariff hikes.

ÔÇťAdelabu has no business remaining in the critical offices he occupies for failing Nigerians he should just take the honourable path and resign, or be faced with frequent civil society mass actions because Nigerians are sick and tired of his weakness and lack of capacity to deliver on Tinubu’s campaign promise

They described Adelabu’s claim that electricity subsidies deter investors as illusionary and demanded his resignation for failing to deliver on promises. The group warned of more mass actions if the Minister did not step down.
