The Association of Meter Manufacturers of Nigeria has come out to put their weight behind, and to seek for support for the new Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu who graciously identified the association and invited it to a fact-finding meeting which culminated in a strategy meeting.
The Association in a press statement signed by President, Engr. Ademola Agoro, and Secretary, Engr. Duro Omogbenigun is happy to observe that unlike typical politician Ministers, Chief Adelabu demonstrated knowledge of the sector and evidence of carefully incubated potential solutions to the issues facing local manufacturers of meters.
“For example, The Honorable Minister encouraged AMMON to state the history of the industry sector despite his tight schedule whereupon 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 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.”
“We should be mindful that the Honorable Minister has barely spent 4weeks in office and met lots of challenges in the power sector.”
“We therefore seek the support of all stakeholders to work with the new Minister for us to have an efficient power sector that addresses the demands of all Nigerians.” the Association concluded.
