By Sunday Etuka, Abuja 

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has clarified that it was not responsible for the failure of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) to deliver estimated hours of electricity to its customers, as alleged.

IBEDC, through publication circulated on its social media handles had accused TCN of being responsible for its failure to deliver estimated hours of supply to customers feeder due to System Outages and Tripping on TCN” ‘s feeders.

However, the TCN General Manager, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah in a statement said, the company took time to investigate the allegation and discovered that the IBEDC’s publication on the 9th of April 2024 across their social media platforms, attributing their inability to deliver estimated hours of supply to its customers was incorrect.

The company said that the feeders mentioned in the publication were not within the TCN network.

“This means that most of the listed feeders in the publication are 11kV operated by IBEDC and completely outside TCN’s Operational Control and in IBEDC’s network”, it said.

TCN further said that the reasons given for the outage on IBEDC 11kV and 33kV were earth/ over current faults, which have no bearing on TCN’s frequency control operations.

It stated that the statement by IBEDC has been verified by TCN’s regional management in Osogbo in conjunction with IBEDC Officials themselves and has been proven to be false, necessitating necessary corrections being made.

“While TCN sees this misinformation of IBEDC as a ploy to undermine and mislead the public against regular power supply, we remain focused on supporting the government’s move towards a more robust and efficient power supply.

“Consequently, TCN assures the public of its commitment to continue to work hard to effectively transport the entire bulk electricity received from the generating companies to distribution load centres nationwide”, the company said.
