Govt unveils TCN’s plan today

PHCN28 August 2013, Abuja – The Ministry of Power will today (Wednesday) unveil the expansion plans of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN.

Power Minister Prof. Chinedu Nebo who made this known in Abuja, noted that the inaugural meeting with the newly constituted board of the TCN scheduled for yesterday, was deferred because of the Chairman Hamman Tukur’s absence.

He added that due to the critical nature of the launch, all TCN stakeholders who were at Tuesday’s aborted meeting were expected to witness the expansion plans today.

Nebo, however, disclosed that the members were billed to meet the Permanent Secretary Ambassador Godknows Agali in a brief close door meeting. As we rise, the members of the board will remain for a very brief meeting by the Permanent Secretary to explain a few things,” he said.

On the deferred meeting, he said: “The meeting is not going to be held because the chairman of the board is not here; because of that, the meeting has been deferred to tomorrow (today ) by four o’clock.

“I would like to appeal for the understanding of all these distinguished members of the Governing Board of Transmission Company of Nigeria for the inconvenience that this would definitely cause you.
