The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), on Sunday has come out to commend the Federal Government over its directive suspending the recent electricity tariff hike in the country.

The association’s President, Mr. Sunday Asefon recently revealed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.

According to him, he suspension of the tariff by the federal government would go a long way in relieving the pains it would have inflicted on electricity consumers upon implementation.

He added that NANS had earlier rejected the hike in the electricity tariff, as they believe that the hike was insensitive, ill-timed, and anti-people.

His words, “The meeting extensively reviewed the recent actions taken by President Muhammadu Buhari, intervening and ordering the suspension of the outrageous electricity tariff,”

“That NANS had earlier rejected the hike in the electricity tariff, as we believe that the hike was insensitive, ill-timed, and anti-people.

“We commend President Buhari for hearkening to the agitations of Nigerians. I want to say unequivocally that the suspension of the tariff hike is commendable at this time.

“We, therefore, call on our members across the country to suspend action and see how the compliance with the reversal will be.”
