An indigenous smart pre-paid meters manufacturer, Mojec International Limited, has denied responsibility for high electricity bills, saying that tariffs lie within the purview of distribution companies (DISCOs).
The company’s Chief Executive, Chantelle Abdul, said in a statement that its officials would not connive with customers to adjust or fiddle with the meters installed.
Ms. Abdul’s statement followed a November15 allegation at the House of Representatives, bordering on the quality of meters manufactured by the company.
She said the company’s prepaid meters were duly tested and certified by Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) and Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA).
We always ensure that our meters undergo rigorous internal quality control and testing before they are deployed to users.
