Managing Director of Sebrud Consortiums, Chisom Nwangwu, an indigenous Meter Manufacturing Company, says the prepaid meter producers in Nigeria are not to be blamed for the shortage of the product for electricity consumers in Nigeria.
Nigerians have continued to decry the inability of Electricity Distribution Companies (DISCOS) to provide enough prepaid electricity meters for consumers.
Nwangwu said on Tuesday in Awka, the Anambra state capital that prepaid meter producers should not be blamed for the inability of the distribution companies to meet consumers’ demands in Nigeria.
He said the prepaid meter manufacturing firms had the capacity to meet the demands for the product.
He said that the Awka-based firm with its 400, 000 installed capacity was ready to work with the 11 electricity distribution companies in Nigeria to help to realise the Federal Government’s objective of having all customers metered.
