Nigerians Will Receive 1 Million PHCN Meters For Free - President Buhari


President Buhari has stated that in the first phase of the Presidential Mass Metering Initiative, Nigerians will receive 1 Million PHCN meters for free.

This is coming a few days after The Federal Government flagged off the distribution of six million free pre-paid electricity metres to Nigerians.

The program has already launched in Eko, Kano, Kaduna and Ikeja Distribution Companies (DisCos) franchise areas.

While speaking at the take off of the programme, held at Surulere, Lagos State, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Eko DisCo, Adeoye Fadeyibi, hinted that in the next 18 to 24 months, over six million metres would be distributed across households in the country.

The President also, in a statement released via his Twitter page, disclosed that distribution has already kicked off in some parts of the country

"Under the first phase of the Presidential Mass Metering Initiative, we are making funding immediately available for DisCos to roll out 1,000,000 Meters in the first phase, at no cost to consumers. Deployment has already started in parts of Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja.

Future phases of this Metering Initiative will help us fully meet the 6.5 million deficit of meters nationwide, and will impact an estimated 30 million consumers. All meters under this program will be sourced from local manufacturers and in-country stock, to create jobs.

We are committed to ending estimated billing in all forms in Nigeria, and ensuring that Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume".
