The Managing Director of the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA), Engr. Peter Ewesor has resumed for another four year term in office, the Daily Trust reports.
Engr. Ewesor who is the pioneer Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation (CEIF) under the former Electricity Management Services Limited (EMSL) now NEMSA, had his appointment renewed by President Muhammadu Buhari last week.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Consumer Protection Network (NCPN) has lauded the federal government’s reappointment of Ewesor. President of the network, Barrister Kunle Kola Olubiyo described the reappointment as a compensation for integrity, hard work, competence, expertise and patriotism.
He said the re-appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari led Government was strictly based on merits using global benchmark of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). It has further demonstrated the proven commitments of the President to integrity.
Speaking on behalf of other members of the network, Olubiyo enjoined the government not to relent in its efforts in closing the huge metering gaps and consolidate on the gains so far recorded in the power sector especially in reviewing the privatisation.
He noted that issues that caused the over N500 billion liquidity challenge in the electricity market must be addressed at once.
“To make the review work, government should bring the parties to the table and iron out the issues. Until this is done, the sector may not see improvement,” he said.
