Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with seven Meter Asset Providers.

The Chief Operating Officer of IBEDC, Engr. John Ayodele at the signing ceremony said IBEDC is committed to providing prepaid meters to its teeming customers across its franchise: Ibadan, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Kwara and parts of Kogi, Ekiti and Niger. The COO in his words “the success of MAP is our own success, where there is commitment we are sure to overcome”.

He added that the new meters that would be rolled out will be of the same quality as the current meters in use. The seven meter providers are; New Hampshire Capital Limited (for Oyo, Ogbomosho, Challenge Business Hubs) Protogy Global Service (for Dugbe, Molete, Ojoo, Montan Business Hub), Tinuten Nigeria Limited (for Ikirun, Ile-Ife, Ilesa Business Hub), Computer Warehouse Group Plc (for Baboko, Jebba, Omu-Aran Business Hubs), Memmcol (for Ota, Sagamu, Sango, Ijebu-Ode Business Hubs).

The providers also include Integrated Resources Limited (for Apata, Ijeun, Olumo Business Hubs).

The Meter Asset Provider scheme was flagged off by the Federal Government in March 2018 to bridge the metering gap in Nigeria.
