Nigeria Today 26/07/2019: Focus on Metering and Electrocution

THE NIGERIAN POWER SECTOR HAS OVER THE YEARS WITNESSED REFORMS THAT HAVE CHANGED THE DYNAMICS TO POWER GENERATION AND DISTRIBUTION ACROSS THE COUNTRY. ONE OF THE MAJOR REFORMS RECORDED IS THE SWITCH OVER FROM ANALOGUE TO DIGITAL METERING…WHICH IS THE PRE PAID METER.
WHILE THIS INNOVATION HAS BEEN GREETED WITH COMMENDATIONS, THERE ARE CHALLENGES HINDERING THE OUTCOMES OF THE PREPAID METTERING SYSTEM IN NIGERIA.
SOME NIGERIANS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT ACCESSING THESE METERS. IRONICALLY A GOOD NUMBER OF THOSE WHO ACQUIRED THESE METERS STILL SEEM TO BE GRAPPLING WITH CHALLENGES RANGING FROM OUTRIGHT FAKE BRANDS TO FAULTY METERS WITH DIRE CONSEQUENCES…ELECTROCUTION!!!
THIS LIFE THREATENING FACTOR HAS STEERED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PLACE A BAN ON METERS AND TRANSFORMERS WITHOUT THE NIGERIAN ELECTRICTY MANAGEMENT AGENCY SEAL.
OBVIOUSLY THESE ISSUES NEED TO BE ADRESSEDAND WE HAD EXPERTS WHO THREW MORE LIGHT ON THE Dos AND DONTs IN ACQUIRING METERS AND HOW CONSUMERS CAN PREVENT ELECTROCUTION AND ATTENDANT THREATS.
THIS IS “NIGERIA TODAY” AND I AM BLESSING ABU. WELCOME!!!
