The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) has directed the Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC) to stop the ongoing installation of the new Smart Meters to the people in the state. Managing Director (MD) CEO and Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation, Engineer Peter O. Ewesor gave the directive while inspecting some of the installed smart meters at Federal Low-cost and Ray field in Jos, last Thursday. Engr. Ewesor said that, NEMSA was in Jos following the petition that was written to them by some residents of Jos through the Plateau State Ministry for Water Resources and Energy complaining about the process used for installation of the new smart meters by the JEDC. He said that, the new smart meters provided by the JEDC was supposed to be tested by NEMSA before installing it to people. He then directed JEDC to immediately take the smart meters to NEMSA for what it called type testing or routine test, in order to check its quality and accuracy, saying that, there were no NEMSA seal or label on the smart meters, which he said needed to be checked.
