The in-house unions of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), on Wednesday, started a protest over the sack of Mr Usman Gur Mohammed as the Managing Director of the company.

Daily Trust observed that members of the unions, comprising the Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC) and the Nigerian Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) were outside the Power House building housing TCN headquarters and the Federal Ministry of Power, chanting protest songs.

TCN staff protest sack of MD

The Minister of Power, Engr. Sale Mamman, through a statement by his spokesman, Aaron Artimas, on Tuesday, had announced the removal of the TCN head.

He was replaced with Engr. Sule Ahmed Abdulaziz as the head of TCN in acting capacity, with immediate effect.

Abdulaziz was the Regional Transmission Manager (RTM), Abuja Region of TCN.

It was not clear, as at the time of protest, if he had assumed duty at the headquarters, as the Abuja regional office where he presided over, is some kilometres away from the Power House.
