Discos To Close 10m Meter Deficit In 5 Yrs – ANED by agwom(m): 8:08am On Jan 13
The power Distribution Companies (DisCos) are targeting the installation of 10 million meters for all households in at least five years, said its representative group – Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED).

Speaking on Channels Television on Tuesday, the Executive Director, Research and Advocacy of ANED, Chief Sunday Oduntan blamed the COVID-19 pandemic and logistics issues for the slow metering process.

DisCos install only 525,000 meters in 2 years
Obnoxious hike in electricity tariff
Daily Trust reports on Monday that the DisCos installed only 525,120 meters (7.5 per cent) of a 7.6m target in two years.

More so Only seven DisCos installed 16,308 meters, with five installing none despite fixing a target of one million meters between from October to December 2020 under the National Mass Metering Programme (NMMP).

But reiterating the DisCos’ commitment to closing the 10m meter deficit, Oduntan said: “I believe that within the next five years, all households in Nigeria should be metered. When I talk about 10 million meters, it’s about those who are still building, the deficit gap; the six million meters of which one million may be completed hopefully by June.”

The DisCos’ spokesman also apologised and called for patience for the failed meter target saying, “Meter is not just something you procure and plug and play; it takes a lot of effort and logistics unlike buying a mobile phone and slotting SIM card. We are not giving excuses, all we are asking for is, to be patient with the government, to show understanding with the regulators and the operators.”

On his part, the Managing Director of MEMMCOL meter manufacturing firm, Mr Kola Balogun, exonerated the manufacturers.

“If you recall there was a scheme that was going on across the country called MAP which needed to be rounded up before we started the mass metering programme.

“A couple of DisCos needed to tidy up those ends so that the new metering initiative which is supposed to be free from the government will come in. Between October and December, that is what most of the DisCos were rounding up.”

Mr Balogun however said, the one million metering target may be met by June 2021.

Nonsense news. Did MTN, Glo, Econet, Etisalat wait for years before billing and metering calls appropriately?

Wicked people and greedy mofos.

We have to provide transformers ourselves, electric poles, high tensions cables.
Yet all this are called the property of the electricity companies.

This pre paid meters are supposed to have been distributed for free but they hoard it like palliatives and sell it to people secretly.

This injustice must stop.

shocked


I wonder what use is the meter when we keep on receiving estimated bills from NEPA....

If to say we dey see the light dey use,we for no dey complain....but the painful part is that we always end up paying for total blackout....

If common Ghana of just yesterday can boast of having constant electricity,I wonder why the headmaster holding Nigeria together shouldn't shout "SCHOOL DISMISS"

Nah eh! No qualms
This is so unsophisticated

The power supply system in Nigeria is second
Worst to none
This Discos cashing out from different geo-political zones, is the ban to development in the power sectors
When we will saying we want privatization of the power sector, we meant through privatization like the one we have among network service providers (like MTN,glo and Co) where the compete heathy with each other, with a lots of improvement.
Not some people cashout steadily on our head with estimated bills

Contrary to Buhari and keyamo's assertion, Ikeja disco has gone ahead to increase the tariff again in flagrant disrespect of presidential order. I just bought ₦10000 worth for 189 units.
