The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) has inducted the Managing Director of the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA), Engr. Aliyu Tukur Tahir, as a fellow.

Tahir who was among the 426 engineers inducted by the NSE described the conferment as an honour to him and fellow conferees.

The MD said the recognition was due to his hard work that led to being drafted as a member of NEMSA from inception.

“Immediately I became MD of NEMSA, I look at the situation when I came in and identified three issues we have made successes but what is needed is to continue with the success. I have seen areas where we need some realignment to bring them back to the trajectory of success which we are working on.”

He added that the agency had embarked on the enforcement of technical standards and regulations, inspection, testing and certification of all categories of electrical installations across the power value chain of generation, transmission, utilisation and distribution.

“This is a wide mandate. So we need to open up our activities to cover the entire mandate of the agency.

“For example, the certification of electrical personnel scheme was once but I have expanded it to four schemes. The monitoring of the existing network was only done in monitoring spots but it has been re-engineered to ensure monitoring is done by feeders.”

He added that the activities of the agency during monitoring have led to the discovery of substandard electrical materials and equipment.

“We ensure they are removed from the system. So this has guaranteed improved power supply, capacity and reduction in number of interruptions on the feeders.”
