President Muhammadu Buhari says his regime is commited to ending estimated billing in all forms across the country.
The President made this known in a series of tweet via his official twitter handle on Wednesday.
According to him, his regime would ensure that “Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume”.
His tweet reads “Under the first phase of the Presidential Mass Metering Initiative, we are making funding immediately available for DisCos to roll out 1,000,000 meters in the first phase, at no cost to consumers. Deployment has already started in parts of Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja.
“Future phases of this metering initiative will help us fully meet the 6.5 million deficit of meters nationwide and will impact an estimated 30 million consumers. All meters under this programme will be sourced from local manufacturers and in-country stock, to create jobs.
“We are committed to ending estimated billing in all forms in Nigeria, and ensuring that Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume.”
