    In a release issued by Agency, the NEMSA MD also commended Buhari for his “ leadership drive and passion to leave behind a better and improved electricity supply services in the Nigerian power sector”

    Notable among these initiatives Tahir said, is the ongoing Presidential Power Initiative (PPI) that seeks to significantly increase power supply across the country.

    The MD who doubles as the Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation, on behalf of the board, management and staff of NEMSA also applauded what he described as the ‘giant strides’ of the Honourable Minister of Power, Engr. Abubakar D. Aliyu FNSE, and the Honourable Minister of State Power, Mr Goddy Jedy-Agba OFR  “for their relentless efforts in providing the needed policy direction in the Nigerian power sector”.

    The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) is established by NEMSA Act, 2015 to carry out the functions of enforcement of Technical standards and regulations, Technical Inspection, Testing and Certification of all categories of Electrical installations, electricity meters and instruments to ensure an efficient production and delivery of safe, reliable and sustainable electivity power supply and guarantee safety of lives and property in the Nigerian electricity supply industry ( NESI) and other allied industries/workplaces and premises

    According to Tahir, the priority of the agency is Nigeria having electricity networks that are stable, safe and reliable stressing that through close collaboration with partners, “NEMSA strives to ensure zero incidences of electrical accidents, energy accountability, eliminate sub-standard equipment and materials and rid the system of quack electrical personnel”.

    One of the strategies to realize the vision he further stated, is through effective service delivery by “consistently applying our corporate culture defined by a simple set of corporate values of quality service and safety, honesty and integrity as well as leadership and collaboration”, he added
