President Buhari has ended the estimated billing sent over by electricity companies to consumers across the country.
The Nigerian leader who directed a nationwide mass metering which signalled an end to estimated billing, also approved a one-year waiver of Import Levy on electricity meters so Nigerians who do not have meters can be supplied as early as possible at reasonable cost.
A statement shared on the official handle of the Nigerian Presidency read;
The Federal Government is working to ensure that DisCos commit to increasing the number of hours of electricity supply per day, and quality of service. A mass metering program is underway, and President @MBuhari remains committed to the protection of poor & vulnerable Nigerians.
President @MBuhari has approved a one-year waiver of Import Levy on electricity meters, so that Nigerians who do not have meters can be supplied as early as possible at reasonable cost.
