BEVERLY HILLS, September 15, (THEWILL) – Nigerian singer, Patrick Okorie better known as Patoranking, has reacted to the recent increase in electricity tariff by the federal government saying it is shocking that people in power still don’t get it.
The tariff increase became effective on September 1, 2020.
Reacting to this development, the singer, while speaking with HipTV, said he hopes Nigerians won’t resort to violence in protest.
He said: “It’s a big problem, you know. We can’t get over these problems. It’s too much, speaking for the common man and the voiceless. The people up there don’t understand. They don’t get it.
“You know, they can’t. We pray we don’t use violence to make them understand that people are suffering. People are really suffering out there. I don’t need to think about anything.
“What is bad is bad. People are suffering. It’s bad. No job; no work to do. No money in circulation and you’re increasing electricity tariff. Who does that? Who advises you?”
