Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai would flag-off the distribution of 20,000 electricity prepaid metres for customers in the state.
The company’s head, Corporate Communication, Mr Abdulazeez Abdullahi made this known in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Kaduna. He said the metres are part of the 50, 000 the Kaduna Electric metres earmarked for distribution in its franchise states of Kaduna, Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi.
“After the successful flag-off of the mass deployment of 50,000 prepaid smart metres in its franchise states at a ceremony in Sokoto in October, Kaduna Electric is set to launch the deployment of the metres in Kaduna state.
“The Kaduna Launch, which is expected to be flagged off by state governor, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, is scheduled for Wednesday.”
“The company is expecting the delivery of more metres before year end which shall also be deployed to its teeming customers in Kaduna, Sokoto, Zamfara and Kebbi, its franchise states,” the spokesman said
