Lagosians to pay between N200 and N250 per meter of water – Badmus
The Managing Director of Lagos Water Corporation, Mr. Muminu Badmus,
on Friday urged Lagosians to imbibe the culture of water conservation.
Badmus gave this advice in Lagos.
He said that the global water scarcity threat necessitates wise usage
of water by consumers.
According to him, any consumer that uses water wisely will appreciate
the metering system the corporation has adopted to protect the
interest of residents.
“The metering system has made water consumers to be aware of how much
the corporation charges per cubic meter, which is equivalenAt to 1000
litres. For clarity, low density areas pay N200, high density areas,
N250 and commercial users N350 per cubic meters respectively. This is
the cheapest rate you can find in any country,” he said.
Badmus said that the Corporation has metered about 32,000 properties
in the first phase of the exercise.
According to him, 24,000 pre-paid meters, 6,000 old meters and 2,000
mechanical meters have been installed in Lekki axis, Victoria Island
Annex, Surulere, Omole and Ikeja among others.

communities not yet covered once there was delivery of additional
He enjoined the residents not yet metered not to relent in paying
their water bills.
The managing director said that those metered would be recharging
their cards when they run out of water.
