The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), has appealed to Nigerians to bear the pains of the new electricity tariff hike, describing it as painful pill they must swallow in the interest of the country.

Fashola, who had a meeting with all stakeholders in power sector in Lagos on Monday, and inspected ongoing works at the Alagbon Local 2x15MVA, 33/11 KV injection substation in Ikoyi, told journalists that the right thing could have been to increase the power before the tariff but unfortunately it was not possible considering the rot the government met on ground.

He assured electricity consumers that they will get value for their money, adding that the electricity distribution companies (DISCOs) have been directed to significantly improve service delivery.
