The issue of generating electricity in Nigeria has always been a huge problem, where the citizens of the country would have to pay for light without getting benefits and value for what they are paying for. Sometime ago, the federal government of Nigeria came up with a tariff policy asking the poor citizens of the country to start paying more for the light that was never provided and if it comes at all, it would be very low. As a result of this tariff increase, lots of protests were staged across the country (Nigeria) and Viewers Corner News team also kicked against such tariff increase. This is because the economic situation of Nigeria does not permit for such increase. Again in a country where people are struggling to feed their families, any such increase would create more burden on the citizens of Nigeria but now that the federal government of Nigeria has decided to invest on solar energy project as an alternative source of power, this would be a great relief for the Nigerian people. Honestly solar energy is affordable and also environmental friendly if handled properly. Viewers Corner News and the advisory team appreciate the effort of the federal government in trying to explore this alternative source of energy which would bring benefits to the citizens of the country when completed.
