The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency, NEMSA, has assured electricity consumers using prepaid meters that units already purchased will not be lost due to the ongoing meter upgrade.
Managing Director of NEMSA, Mr Tukur Tahir, disclosed this on Sunday in a statement by the Agency’s head Communication and Protocol Unit, Ama Umoren.
Blaze fm recalls that the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) had directed electricity customers nationwide to update their metering devices or face challenges with recharging by 2024.
Tahir is reacting to enquiries from electricity consumers over the ongoing discussion on Standard Transfer Specification (STS) of prepaid meters upgrading using Token Identifier (TID) rollover, set to commence soon.
NEMSA assured customers that they had nothing to fear as the meter upgrade process would not affect the credit unit balance on their meters.
