The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Reps, Femi Gbajabiamila has emphasised the need to waive electricity bills for Nigerians for 2 months and the need for an all-inclusive relief package of government to mitigate the #COVID-19 crisis.
The Speaker in a meeting between National Assembly leadership & the Minister of Finance, Minister of State Petroleum, GMD NNPC, Governor of CBN said one of the most effective means of alleviating the financial burden of the stay-at-home order is to subsidize electricity for Nigerians.
“The proposal is a basic, simple commonsense. There is no way and no how, if you ask people to sit at home for two weeks, and not provide them with a basic necessity of life .” He said
