The Nigerian Government has approved a downward review of electricity tariff for Band A customers.

The Band A customers are citizens who enjoy a daily supply of a minimum of 20 hours.

Under the approved review, Band A customers who hitherto were charged N225/Kwh are now to pay N206.80/Kwh.

The review of the tariff was announced on Monday morning in a notice issued by Ikeja Electric. 


The notice reads: “Please be informed of the downward tariff review of our Band A feeders from N225/kwh to N206.80/kwh effective 6th May 2024 with guaranteed availability of 20-24hrs supply daily.

The tariff for Bands B, C, D, and E remains unchanged.”

In April, media reported how President Bola Tinubu’s administration approved N225 ($0.15) per kilowatt-hour tariff increment for Band A electricity consumers in the country.

This development generated backlash from civil society organisations and concerned Nigerians who described the action as insensitive to the economic hardship facing Nigerians.

For instance, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) knocked the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, over the government’s failure to deliver a constant power supply despite increasing tariffs for Nigerians using Band A.

In what he described as “the illegality of tariffs”, Falana said the Nigerian government and Adelabu could not defend the impunity that led to the hike, adding that they failed Nigerians.
