Reports on the suspension of the transfer of electricity regulatory autonomy to states dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

Daily Trust reports that communities between the Nigeria-Niger border are battling rising poverty due to a decline in business activities. The newspaper says at least 200 people died of heat waves in Yola, Adamawa state capital, from May 1 to 13.

The Nation reports that the federal government has suspended the policy of transferring electricity regulatory autonomy to state governments. The newspaper says Nyesom Wike, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), says he is not distracted by the ongoing political crisis in Rivers state.

The Guardian reports that the hike in electricity tariff and the high cost of medicine are compounding the woes of the health sector. The newspaper says that organised labour has kicked against the reported plan of the federal government to borrow N20 trillion from pension funds for infrastructural development.

The Punch reports that the federal government may consider assisting independent fuel marketers with funding to install compressed natural gas sales pumps at filling stations across the country. Gboyega Oyetola, minister of marine and blue economy, has boasted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will take over Osun state in 2026, the newspaper says.
