Mr Felix Ofulue, Head, Corporate Communications, IE, confirmed the development in a statement issued to newsmen on Sunday in Lagos.

According to Ofulue, a total of 106,000 customers of the electricity Distribution Company, would be installed with free prepaid meters, under the first phase of the NMMP. “All those who are yet to register are enjoined to visit map.Ikejaelectric.com to complete their registration, as soon as possible. “Please note that we will not be able to meter you without a complete registration,” he said. He, however, advised customers not to make any payment to Meter Assets Providers (MAP) installers, or IE staff, during the field survey and meter installation. This programme took on Oct. 30, 2020, under the direction of the Federal government to ensure all DisCos’s customers are metered under the new programme.

It would assist in reducing collection losses, while at the same time, increase financial flows, to achieve 100 percent market remittance obligation of the DisCos. Part of the objectives also includes the elimination of arbitrary estimated billing, improving network monitoring capability, and provision of data for market administration and investment decision-making.
