President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his administration determination to end estimated billing in electricity supply in Nigeria.

In a statement on Twitter on Wednesday, President Buhari noted his administration has started the first phase of mass metering under the ‘Presidential Mass Metering Initiative (PMMI).

He said funds are being made available to electricity distribution companies (DisCos) to roll out 1,000,000 Meters to consumers at no cost.

“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,” the President noted.

“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 program 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.”
