The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) on Wednesday commissioned test equipment for inspection, testing and certification of all electrical installations across the country.
The commissioning was done by NEMSA MD/CEO & Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation, Engr. Peter O. Ewesor, at the headquarters of the agency in Abuja.
Ewesor in his opening remarks pointed out that the importance of equipping the Area Inspecting Engineers is to ensure that all relevant standards and specifications in electrical installation are maintained. “When the Area Inspecting Engineers are ill equipped, they cannot perform, thus, the function of enforcement of standards would not be achieved without equipment,” he said.
