The minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has said any customer who is not currently enjoying a 20-hour electricity supply would not pay the new tariff.

The minister said this in Abuja on Monday, April 29, when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Power at an investigative hearing over the recent electricity tariff hike by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).

The minister also said that the federal government would pay the sum of N2.9 trillion to subsidise electricity this year if the tariff was not reviewed.

According to him, the government introduced the new policy to rescue the power sector.
