According to PEOPLES GAZATTE, this was contained in a statement issued by Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) on Monday.

“This laudable initiative is still very much on course as a total of over 900, 000 units of meters have so far been installed under the takeoff scheme without any payment by benefiting consumers.

“While this doesn’t cover many of the unmetered customers, we are pleased to inform electricity consumers that the next phase, under which about four million units of meters would be procured from local meter manufacturers, has commenced.

“Pending the conclusion of the NMMP, procurement processes and the commencement of manufacturing and installation, consumers may elect to acquire a meter from the Meter Asset Programme (MAP).“

BLUEPRINT reports that according to the commission, the recently issued notice on the adjusted cost of the meter has been designed to protect consumers from arbitrary pricing by MAP. Jamb Result

The commission also advised that clarification should be made from the commission’s Public Affairs Department on any regulatory matter to avoid misinforming innocent consumers of electricity in the country.
