NEMSA raises alarm over usage of unsealed metres
The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) has expressed dissatisfaction over continuous usage of unsealed electrical metres nationwide.Speaking, yesterday, in Abuja at the inauguration of the Parastatal Servicom Committee (PSC), the Managing Director, NEMSA, Engineer Peter Ewesor said the only assurance and guarantee that a metre is correct is when there is a seal on it.
He explained that the seal attached to the metre is the only way to know it has passed through the National metre certification of NEMSA, where it is tested to ensure that the quality approved by the manufacturer has been installed and that the power received by consumers is what they paid for.
He said: “When this seal is not there, you should report to NEMSA, so that we can go there and find out what type of metre and carry out an on-site test to find out whether it meets required accuracy and certification in line with the metering code, which the National Electricity Commission has put in place to guide the manufacturing, supply and installation of metres in our industry.”
The Director urged the public to assist the body, by calling on them whenever there is emergency for it to deliver on its mandate effectively. On her part, the National Coordinator of Servicom, Nnenna Akajemeli stressed the need to establish PSC to sustain the service delivery initiative.
