HIKE IN ELECTRICITY TARIFFS: REPS WILL INTERVENE UPON RESUMPTION OF PLENARY -KALU                                                                                                08-04-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                         The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Benjamin Kalu says that the House of Representatives will debate the propriety or otherwise of the recent hike in the electricity tariffs upon the resumption of plenary later this month.
Speaking virtually on a program, the deputy speaker posited that the parliament, heeding the calls of Nigerians for its intervention in the matter will adopt a win-win approach in resolving the issues..
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Levinus Nwabughiogu, the Deputy Speaker noted that It is a general problem.

Mr. Kalu assured Nigerians that when the House resume, it will be one of the things to be considered after resumption.
On the possibility of giving Nigerians a brand new constitution, leveraging the ongoing review of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), Mr. Kalu said that it behooves on the people to lead the debate and provide a practicable template for the national assembly to consider the merits and demerits.

“Yes, some school of thought has expressed view that they want a new constitution, drop the old one and pick up something new. Some elders known as The Patriots are also asking for a brand new constitution. But as you know, we are the people’s parliament. You are our bosses.
Mr. Kalu also subscribed to the views of a retired military personnel from Umuda Isingwu that the review of military pension system was long over due to enable the ex-service men and indeed, similar retirees to meet up with the demands of the present economic realities.
