The Managing Director of the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) says all importers of fake meters will be punished.

Speaking at a meeting in Abuja on Saturday, Mr Peter Ewesor said that over 22,336 meters have been tested from three test stations.

“Today (January 9, 2016), we have actually tested 22, 336 meters from our three meter test stations. Out of these, we have type test which tested 110 types of meters.

“Type test requires testing new meters – if it could work in Nigeria, if it meets international best practice, environmental condition in terms of temperature and humidity.

“When the meter has been type tested, and we find out that it meets the specifications of the Nigerian Metering Code put in place to guide the type of meter we should use in the country, then, the meter would be given a certification – which means the metre could be imported.

“The meter must meet the quality of the metre you gave which we have given you to say it has a pass mark.”

Mr Ewesor stated that the exercise would be a continuous one and advised importers of meters to ensure they adhere to the Nigerian Metering Code. (Channels TV)
