The Managing Director, Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), Ernest Mupwaya, has appealed to the Federal Government to grant duties waivers on 100 containers loaded meters currently stuck at Lagos Ports.

Mupwaya who was speaking in Abuja when the Senate committee on Power, led by its Chairman, Senator Gabriel Suswam, visited the AEDC headquarters on oversight visit, said the huge volume of meters if have been cleared would have gone a long way to reduce unmetered customers within the company’s franchise area.

The meters were imported by the three accredited Meters Asset Providers (MAP) for the electric company, Mojec International covers FCT and Kogi, Meron Consortium, Nasarawa, and Turbo Energy, Niger franchise area.

Mojec is said to own 60 per cent of the containers.

Mupwaya said at an average rate of between 600 and 700 meter installation per day, the stuck meters if available would have speed-up metering process in the network.
