Electricity Meter Manufacturers Begs Government For Loan.

The Executive Secretary of Electricity Meter Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (EMMAN), Mr. Muyideen Ibrahim has appealed to the Federal Government to grant members of his association access to a special
intervention fund at two percent annual interest rate.

Mr Ibrahim made this passionate appeal during an interview session with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)on Friday July 17, 2015 in Lagos. In his justification as to why the fund is needed, he said the fund would grow the sale of meters that are locally manufactured to distribution companies at a highly competitive price and that would make it possible for meter vendors and customers to purchase meters directly from local producers.

While agitating for government‘s protection of his association (EMMAN), he said, “Government should alsoprevail on all the distribution companies to patronize locally produced electricity meters in order to create more jobs for Nigerians.”
