ABUJA — THE Senate, yesterday, called on the managers of electricity in the country to discard what it described as ‘’estimated billing’’ in charging consumers, saying the method was not in the best interest of Nigeria and its people.

It said they should instead provide pre-paid metres to meet up with modern day challenges in electricity sector.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Power, Mines and Metallurgy, Philip Aduda, made this known, yesterday, when the management team of Electricity Management Service Limited, EMSL, paid his committee a courtesy visit in Abuja.

Speaking earlier, Managing Director of the EMSL, Mr. Peter Ewesor, had commended the committee for its contribution to the successes so far recorded, in the on-going privatisation of the power sector.
He said they would do everything within its powers to ensure accountability in its dealings with the privatised companies.
