The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Tuesday visited the Presidential Villa, Abuja as part of efforts to resolve issues surrounding planned hike in electricity tariff in the country.

The two National Assembly leaders first met separately with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on the issue before meeting again with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

At the end of the meeting with Osinbajo, they told State House correspondents that the earlier plan by the distribution companies to hike tariff from July 1 was untimely.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that the two National Assembly leaders in a meeting on Monday succeeded in prevailing on the distribution companies to shelve the hike till the first quarter of next year.
