Speaking on the hike in electricity tariff, the Chairman of the Committee, Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, said an investigative hearing has already been scheduled for the 29th of April to address major concerns trailing the policy.

The incessant power grid collapse in the country was addressed during the visit, and according to the TCN, gas shortage for power generation and the vandalism of power infrastructure are responsible for the recurrent incidents of grid collapse in the country.
