The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has denied a statement credited to its Head of Public Affairs, on a national blackout, describing publication attributed to it as “false and totally misleading”.
The TCN Management maintained that the national grid is currently “intact and supplying bulk electricity to distribution load centers nationwide.”
The statement 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 centers 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.
