South Africa electricity that have collapsed for quite some time now. There electricity situation could be worst than Nigeria own currently

We want stable electricity, give us light yhen yehn yehn, then we will take care of ourselves.

Now they have given us the electricity rate, we have started compare and contrast..

How much do we spend on Owambe's religious activities compared to the new electricity tarrif?

We are not ready for stable electricity in Nigeria

This is the problem with all the successive oppressive govt Nigeria is unfortunate to have. They always compare the country and its citizens with no good indices that will make live easy for the common man bit always the bad.

This is what the present evil APC government is also doing. Minimum wage is not commensurate with any social service that is consuming it from the government.

There's a lot of irritating things like you online.

I wander why you lowlifes can't just write your own comment instead of crying about other people's comment.

If there's regular power supply, I don't mind the price cause I use a prepaid meter, it's my personal opinion, am not speaking for you or your family.

Expanding on the argument (using N1,300 = $1 conversion rate):

Electricity in North Dakota (US) is N130 per KWH, minimum wage is N1.3 million naira monthly

Electricity in Texas (US) is N195 per KWH, minimum wage is N1.3 million naira monthly

Electricity in Nigeria is N225 per KWH, minimum wage is N30,000 naira monthly

You are comparuing Nigeria to countries with advanced power supply. Nigeria is expensive because demand is high while supply is low. Its simple economics. The more attractive our power sector is, the more generation and supply and the less we will pay. Also lets not forget that many nigeria bypass power leading to more loss.

The electricity tariff increase is extremely unfortunate and disheartening at this time because this would cause so much pain to majority of Nigerians!

Honestly, this is the right time the Federal Government would need to "as a matter of urgency" "institutionalize the minimum wage" in Nigeria both at Public and Private sectors.

To achieve "a more robust and realistic minimum wage" for workers in Nigeria, the Government would need to extremely block all leakages like direct embezzlement and stealing of funds by all public office holders at all levels of Governance!

GOD bless Nigeria!

GOD bless United States of America!

Since I travelled I have learnt not to insult the Nigeria state no matter what rather the insult should be directed to the leaders especially APC.

They came and destroyed our naira. Before this 30k minimum wage could buy 4 bags of foreign rice @ 2014 not very long now 4 bags in 2024 =320k.

Minimum wage 30k = 4 bags of rice in 2014
4 bags of rice 2024= 320k
South African minimum wage = 312k

Meaning that the purchase power of naira in 2014 was even higher than south Africans m.wage


In 2013/2014 corpers posted for NYSC service that received 30k alawee came back with savings of 250k with it they started business. Some even travelled to Cotonou to start importing goods

But today 30k no even fit reach 6 days e don finish


It shall never be well with APC

I believe the cost of electricity is subsidized in those countries but still yet Nigeria state of affairs is nothing to write home about

It doesn't matter anymore because you're now being charged like someone who is on estimated billings. If your prepaid meter is useful, you wouldn't be placed on a unique higher tariff grin grin grin. Olodo
