The Association of Meter Manufacturers of Nigeria has come out to put their weight behind, and to seek support for the new Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu who graciously identified with the association and invited it to a fact-finding meeting that culminated in a strategy meeting.
In a statement signed by both the president and Secretary of the association, Ademola Agoro and DuroOmogbenigun, it stated that the Association was happy to observe that, unlike typical politicians, the Ministers demonstrated knowledge of the sector and evidence of carefully incubated potential solutions to the issues facing local manufacturers of meters.
According to the association: “The Honorable Minister, for example, encouraged AMMON to intimate him with the history of the sector despite his tight schedule at which point he immediately offered some tangible solutions he was working on for our sector. In this exercise, he offered impressive resources that he could bring to bear given possible influence of his current and past positions in government.”.
The Honorable Minister further stated also informed the Association that he is presently on a bilateral engagement with all stakeholders, in his bid to further understand the challenges of each player in the power sector.
“As a body, we are pleased that we have a minister who is not only a successful politician but one who is patriotic, ready to work hard, understand sectoral issues and deliver performance while using both his professional and business acumen to reposition the sector.”
AMMON urged stakeholders in the industry to be mindful that the Honorable Minister has barely spent Four weeks in office, and met many challenges in the power sector.
“We therefore seek the support of all stakeholders to work with the new Minister to have an efficient power sector that addresses the demands of all Nigerians.”
