TCN refutes publication on national blackout by a newspaper

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) described as unfair and malicious a publication by one of the national dailies that there will be a national blackout.
A statement by the management says: “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.
