Concerned about the plight of electricity consumers, the Federal Government is considering the deployment of a card payment system to eliminate the exploitation of Nigerians by electricity firms.
Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo disclosed this while playing host to the Moderator of the Synod of the North of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, Rev. Ini Ukpuho, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office as part of activities to commemorate the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Synod.
The Vice President said that the government was working hard to resolve the challenges faced by power consumers in payment of bills, saying very soon a card payment system would be introduced to ease their troubles.
Osinbajo said the new administration government was not interested in victimizing anyone, but to ensure that people understand that there is a consequence for every act of impunity and corruption in the country.
The Vice President, who acknowledged the historical role of the Presbyterian Church in national transformation through its missionary leaders, said that the present generation should strive to use its pulpits as a platform to provide direction to its members towards national revival.
