The Association of Meter Manufacturers of Nigeria (AMMON) has pledged to support the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, in his efforts to address issues with the power sector and achieve the universal metering of households in Nigeria.



Engr. Ademola Agoro, AMMON President, made this known in statement, obtained by EnergyDay on Wednesday, on the sideline of his Association’s courtesy call to the office of the Minister in Abuja.


Adelabu in his remark during the meeting informed Association that he is presently on a bilateral engagement with all stakeholders, in his bid to further understand the challenges of each player in the power sector.


The Minister therefore offered some tangible solutions being considered by the Ministry to addressing prepaid metering challenges and closing the gap to move the sector forward.


Adelabu further charged AMMON to submit their observation of the industry issues based on their perspective with a view to harmonising all strategies that will make the system work.


Earlier in his remark, Engr.  Agoro stated that AMMON is offering the Minister the needed support for a fact-finding meeting that will culminate into a strategy for the revamp of the power sector.


He said, “Chief Adelabu demonstrated knowledge of the sector and potential solutions to the issues facing local manufacturers of meters.


“As a body, we are pleased that we have a minister who is patriotic, ready to work hard, understand sectoral issues and deliver performance while using both his professional and business acumen to reposition the sector,” AMMON President said.


Agoro therefore seeks the support of all power sector stakeholders to work with the Minister for Nigeria to have an efficient power sector that addresses the demands of all Nigerians.


According to him, the Minister had barely spent four weeks in office and met lots of challenges in the power sector.
