Federal Government to sanction discos selling meters.

Federal Government will sanction any electricity distribution company or its representatives selling meters or asking Nigerians to pay to get the item.

The Special Adviser to the President on Infrastructure, Ahmed Zakari, gave the warning at a stakeholders’ engagement on electricity tariff, organised by the Federal Government/NLC-TUC Ad-hoc Committee.

Zakari stressed that Federal Government had made it clear through the regulator’s direct order, as well as the intervention from the Ministry of Power, that meters should be made available to Nigerians free of charge and that they must be produced locally in order to create jobs.

According to him, even meters that will be paid for through the MAP, there was a directive from the regulator to the discos that they need to find a way to reimburse citizens over time.
