Fashola orders power firms to supply meters to consumers

15 March 2016, 14:22

Enugu - Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has ordered power distribution companies to immediately supply meters to consumers.

This is also as the minister assured of the federal government’s commitment towards steady power supply across the country.

Fashola stated this in a Communique issued at the end of 3rd monthly sectoral meeting of operators in the electricity industry, held at Ugwuaji transmission station, Enugu.

The power stakeholders resolved to reinvigorate their efforts towards customer engagement, through the launching of customer care units, for adequate resolution of power sectors issues in line with the standard set up by NERC.

Fashola, who briefed newsmen shortly after the meeting, however, expressed optimism that the present challenge militating against the supply of electricity in the country would be surmounted once Nigerians understood how the system operates.
