The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (MD/CEO) of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Engr Sule Abdulaziz, has said that the company is realising its five-point agenda, including power grid visibility and reforms.
Speaking at a three-day management retreat over the weekend in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Engr Abdulaziz lauded the management and staff of the organisation for keenly driving the agenda.
Abdulaziz said, “As you all know, we started this year with an unwavering simple, realistic and definite five-point agenda for the organisation; the agenda which has been thriving on ease of operation, credibility, teamwork and focus on excellence in the organisation.”
The TCN boss, who mentioned the milestones, said they included an increase in grid visibility and stability through integrated system planning using available technologies for short gap solutions and enhancing human resources development.
The three others are ensuring efficiency in project execution and management for service delivery, ensuring efficient equipment maintenance for high viability and availability, and ensuring efficient prime visibility and management.
He further said, “It is my hope that we will achieve even much more as evident by the results recorded so far this year. And I believe it is a work in progress.”
He directed the 10 regional managers to execute all scheduled maintenance of transformers while clearing weeds and plantations around power transmission lines as the dry season set in to prevent fire.
The Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, represented by the Commissioner for Power and Petroleum Development, Dr John Etim, commended TCN for holding the retreat as a critical infrastructure provider and operator.
