Power Transmission Not Affected By Current Labour Issue

The Transmission Company of Nigeria wishes to clearly state that there would be no blackout in the nation as TCN staff in its regional offices nationwide, who are responsible for the actual wheeling of bulk electricity, are at their duty posts, ensuring that electricity generated by power generating stations is seamlessly transmitted to distribution load centres nationwide.

TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Seun Olagunju in a statement explained that the on-going labour issues affect administrative work only at the corporate headquarters of TCN and that the company’s ability to carry out its core duty of wheeling bulk electricity is not in any way hampered by the inability of staff at the corporate headquarters (whose core duties are mainly administrative and supervisory), to temporarily gain access to their offices.
