He cautioned the customers against paying for fresh Meters.
“We are going to commence the free distribution of the meters to every category of consumer very soon.
“Contrary to the notion that we don’t want to give out meters, the mere fact that consumers don’t have meters affects us the more.
“So, it is beneficial to the company that all households have meters, considering the level of energy lost to lack of meters,’’ he said.
Also, Mr Waliu Sanni, the Business Manager, IBEDC Omu-Aran District, said that over 600 pre-paid meters had been distributed free within the district.
