The Managing Director of Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JED), Engr. Abdo Bello Mohammed has said he inject about 400,000 meters in its franchise States of Bauchi, Gombe, Benue and Plateau aimed at bridging the gab of meter shortages.

Mohammed disclosed this on Thursday in Jos during an interactive session with vendors handling the company’s Meters Asset Providers (MAP) programme.

He decried the millipedeous speed with which the meter vendors were going about customer metering, adding that more efforts would be put in place towards achieving the metering goals of the company.

“If you look at the number of meters installed by MAP is not impressive. We still have a very long way to go. We will need to expeditiously bridge the metering gap to safeguard our revenue”, Mohammed said.

He therefore, requested all the vendors to submit to him their meters deployment plans for 2023 before the end of Next week, saying that all their plans must be strictly adhered to.

He expressed optimism that most of the company’s customers would soon be metered informing that MAP was introduced to ensure access to meters by customers to eradicate billing disputations.

However according to the statement signed by the Head Corporate Communications, JED, Dr. Friday Adakole Elijah, responses from meter suppliers assured that they will live up to their mandates of metering customers.
