SERAP Condemns Arbitrary Electricity Tariff, Fuel Price Hike by Tobbydhayor90: 10:10pm On Sep 08
Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has condemned “the patently unfair and arbitrary hike in electricity tariff and fuel price by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari. This is unjust to many people living in extreme poverty, and entirely incompatible with the Nigerian Constitution of 1999 [as amended] and the country’s international human rights obligations.”

Kolawole Oluwadare, SERAP deputy director said in a statement today: “The hike will endanger lives and increase inequality and poverty exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. SERAP will challenge this travesty in court if the Federal Government does not immediately drop these retrogressive measures against the Nigerian people.”

“Specifically, the increase in electricity tariff and fuel price clearly violates Nigeria’s obligations under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, to which the country is a state party, not to take ‘deliberately retrogressive measures’ unless there are no alternative options and full consideration has been given to ensure that the measures are necessary and proportionate.”

“SERAP urges President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately drop the misguided hike, and to establish independent impact assessment of the increases on the poorest segments of society, and to identify alternative measures, such as cutting the bogus allowances of people in the Presidency and members of the National Assembly.”

“The hike is lacking in compassion, as it will hit the poorest and most vulnerable Nigerians the hardest, increase inequality levels in an already very unequal Nigeria. It definitively signals that socio-economic rights are a very low priority for this government.”

“President Buhari should reconsider these arbitrary measures and put human rights at the centre of his government’s policies.”

Please keep quiet if you can't see that we have faired worse off under those who promised a negative change to us.

APC and PDP are one and the same they are one and the same splinter groups of the area boys tormenting Nigeria. Their only differences are their tenacity for Nepotism and Tribal sentiments.

Effect of external borrowing too much. Your lenders will give you certain conditions which increase in VAT, pump price and electricity tarrifs. This is what we are facing now. We all clamoured for change and here it comes in a very costly manner.

This country would soon scatter, because naija man is afraid to die we can only waste our time talking instead of action. We never see anything yet. May God help us
