As one of the first Discos in the country to key into this initiative, we are excited about the prospect that the initiative holds for the country. We are in no doubt that this is a significant effort at repositioning the Nigerian power sector which will ultimately bring about sustained economic growth and enhanced development,” Fadeyibi said.

He encourage the MAPs to ensure all customers within the EKEDC’s distribution network are captured under the new metering plan. He also admonished them to ensure that installations of the meters are exercised in a manner that guard against revenue loss.

Poor electricity supply as a misery to small businesses, has weakened most economic activities in the country, which has forced companies to seek alternatives to power generation. This in turn, adds to the overhead cost. Sufficient power supply is necessary for businesses to function properly and  expand.

This therefore means that higher electricity costs push business costs higher, thus, reducing business competitiveness.
