TCN Says No Nationwide Blackout Over Strike


The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that there was no plan to put Nigeria into total blackout as a result of the strike.

A statement by TCN obtained by The Nation, titled: ‘False publication by daily post on national blackout’ signed by its Management, reads:

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria hereby states that the publication by Daily Post alleging that the Head of Public Affairs of TCN said that there will be a national blackout is false and totally misleading.

“The statement is mischievous and baseless as TCN, through the Public Affairs Head, did not make such statement.

“We hereby note that the nation’s grid is intact and supplying bulk electricity to distribution load centres nationwide.

“As at when issuing this statement, the TCN National Control Centre Osogbo which controls bulk power transmission nationwide, is actively operational. We would appreciate that reports are made with a sense of responsibility not just to cause panic.”
