Buhari who disclosed this in a series of tweets on his verified Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Wednesday said the federal government has appropriated funds to distribute one million meters at no cost to consumers across the country.

He said the distribution has already commenced in parts of Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja while noting that the target is to meet the 6.5 million deficit of meters nationwide.

Buhari wrote, “Under the first phase of the Presidential Mass Metering Initiative, we are making funding immediately available for DisCos to roll out 1,000,000 meters in the first phase, at no cost to consumers. Deployment has already started in parts of Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja.

“Future phases of this metering initiative will help us fully meet the 6.5 million deficit of meters nationwide and will impact an estimated 30 million consumers. All meters under this programme will be sourced from local manufacturers and in-country stock, to create jobs.

“We are committed to ending estimated billing in all forms in Nigeria, and ensuring that Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume.”
