The Chairman of the group, Leonard Dibia at a media parley in Lagos called on Nigerians to insist on having improved power supply across the country before they can accept the new tariff.
According to him, if government should go ahead with the new tariff plan with the current estimated bill being used by the PHCN official on the old metre will amount to cheating ordinary Nigerians.
Dibia who is also the Director of Programme, Access to Justice, lamented the poor power situation in the country saying that after 50 years of independence, Nigerians still groan with no power supply.
He said despite the fact that every successive administration usually votes huge sum of money in the budget for power yet power remains a big problem in the country.
He said the only way is for the PHCN to first ensure that every customer has the prepaid metre before can now talk of tariff because most federal and state government agencies are said to owing it’s a lot of money due to the agency’s inability to provide proper records of customer’s power consumption and monitoring.
