Published:

Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has commenced distribution of 87,747 prepaid meters to electricity consumers under the National Mass Metering Programme (NMMP).

At the flag off ceremony of the distribution, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Dr. Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, disclosed that federal government along with 11 DISCOS across the country would distribute six million prepaid meters to consumers in the country.

Gwamna who was represented by the company Chief Operation Officer, Mr. Vijay Sonawane, said, “With the distribution of the meters, customers will no longer receive estimated bills as is the case before now.”

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who released the NMMP earlier, said key objectives of the NMMP include increasing Nigeria’s metering rate, elimination of arbitrary estimated billing, strengthening the local metre value chain by increasing local meter manufacturing, assembly and deployment capacity.
