The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA), and Chief Electrical Inspector of the Federation, Peter Ewesor has said the Agency is creating a retraining scheme for certified electrical contractors, linesmen and professionals nationwide to enhance safety and zero accident in the power sector. The Agency certifies all electrical contractors, tests meters and ensures safety and technical standards in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI).
Ewesor disclosed this on Monday when he received the new Director General of the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria (NAPTIN), Ahmed Nagode, who was on a courtesy visit to NEMSA headquarters in Abuja.
Ewesor said while many electrical contractors and workers have been certified, they however need continuous training and retraining to promote safety and technical standards in the power sector
According to him, “It is another ground that NEMSA and NAPTIN are breaking and we have started discussion with the Licensed Electrical Contractors Association of Nigeria (LECAN) on that because they have a larger pool of electricians”.
On his part, the Director General of NAPTIN, Ahmed Bolaji Nagode said “We have trained staff of NEMSA on two occasions and from the statement of the MD/CEO, the outcome was good and that means we have met our objective. I must commend him because it’s only a good leader that will consider training and retraining for his staff.”
