No decision yet on two-month free electricity – FG
’Femi Asu and Joseph OlaoluwaThe Federal Government has yet to take a decision to provide free electricity supply to Nigerians for two months, the Minister of Power, Mr Saleh Mamman, has said.The minister’s statement comes after power distribution companies said that the two-month free electricity which they announced on Wednesday would be paid for by the National Assembly and the Federal Government.
Mamman, in a tweet on Friday, said, “No decision has been taken by the Federal Government to provide Nigerians with free electricity for two months.“If and when that becomes a reality, it shall be announced officially. Be rest assured that the Federal Government is exploring ways to ameliorate any hardship on Nigerians.”

Never mind abeg...just reduce fuel pump price. We are good. Not bad After purportedly ending the inefficient subsidy on PMS, are we embarking on another subsidy scam in disguise?🤔 Be patient Nigerians. Who knows, maybe they'll reach a decision and include it in the 2023 manifesto. Governance at its finest
