The Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC) said it had resumed metering. They are ready to install about 40, 000 meters in the next two months across four states. These four states include Plateau, Bauchi, Gombe and Benue states.
JEDC had earlier installed about 26,000 meters across the four states but the exercise was suspended in April. This suspension was due to a protest by the Coalition of Plateau Communities after requesting that the device be checked. NEMSA then ordered the company to stop further installation.
The JEDC Managing Director, Mohammed Gidado Modibbo, told journalists in Jos that Nigerian Electricity Management Service Agency (NEMSA) has now given them the green light. This would enable them to continue with the installation of the meters after it certified them good.
