Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw has criticized the Federal Government’s policy of categorizing electricity consumers, describing it as unprecedented and unfair.

The actress criticized the practice of categorizing electricity supply into different bands, which determines both availability and cost, in a strongly worded post on the microblogging media platform X on Wednesday.

She wrote on X, “Nowhere, absolutely nowhere in the world, is there this purported ‘banding’ of electricity supply. Give everyone access to electricity and let them pay fairly for their consumption. Yet, every 2 to 3 months, there is an increase in tariff!! Daylight robbery in darkness.”

Her post came in response to journalist Olive Modi’s stance on Nigeria’s epileptic power supply, in which she likened living in Nigeria to a toxic relationship where something always goes wrong.

Modi said, “The question is what exactly is going on. Sometime in April 2024, the electricity companies classified electricity distribution into different bands from band A to band E, with band A having the most frequent supply of power and also having to pay the most, while some other people are complaining about not even having power at all, even though they are paying exorbitantly for it.”

“On the third of April, the government approved an increase in the electricity tariff for customers under the band A classification. Living in Nigeria feels like some sort of toxic form of relationship where you constantly expect something to go wrong.”
