The Special Adviser speaks on NEMSA’s oversight of more than 20 new local manufacturing companies onboarded to assemble procured metres.
The Federal Government says four million metres will be distributed in the second phase of the ongoing National Mass Metering Programme.
Special Adviser to the President on Infrastructure, Ahmad Zakari, who made a live appearance on a television show on Wednesday, added that one million units were deployed in the first phase of the programme.
Zakari alluded to the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) overseeing more than 20 new local manufacturing companies onboarded to assemble the procured metres.
“Prior to the National Mass Metering Programme, there was no scalable programme on metering in the country. The first phase of the metering programme has distributed one million metres.
“We’ve subsequently concluded the process for another four million metres that are all going to local manufacturers,” he said.
