The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN has dismissed reports that it shut down the National grid over the indefinite strike by the organised Labour.
The TCN stressed that the assertion made by an online news platform, which claimed that the Head of Public Affairs of TCN had predicted a nationwide power outage, is incorrect and deceptive.
In a statement released by the TCN management and posted on its official X account on Tuesday, it was clarified that the Public Affairs Head did not make any such statement.
The statement further revealed that the country’s power grid is fully functional and continues to consistently supply significant electricity to distribution load centres throughout the nation.
“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 a statement.
“We hereby note that the nation’s grid is intact and supplying bulk electricity to distribution load centres nationwide''.
“As of 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'', the electricity transmission company stated.
