The Meter Manufacturers and Assemblers Association of Nigeria (MMAAN) has said its activities in the last year have led to the creation of over 50,000 jobs.
According to the association, this is against the 10,000 jobs, which the federal government credited to MMAAN in its recently released report card titled “Buhari’s Footprints on the Sands of Time”.
In the report, the federal government was quoted to have stated that the nationwide rollout of electricity meters under the National Mass Metering Programme generated 10,000 new jobs in meter installation and assembly.
But in a statement jointly signed by MMAAN Acting President, Engr. Ademola Agoro and Secretary, Engr Duro Omogbenigun, said its members provided one million meters in the first phase with multiplier effects to have reached at least 3,000 persons per factory; and thus, about 50,000 jobs were created for support services personnel, meter installers and after-sales service providers nationwide.
“Currently, the local meter manufacturing industry has seen an increase from 13 to 43 companies, with a commensurate escalation in manufacturing capacity officially accessed at 4.9 million meters per year; now positioned to provide Nigerian electricity consumers with another four million meters", he said.
