By Sunday Etuka, Abuja

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has faulted Jos Electricity Distribution Company (DisCo) for its reports on power restoration, and allocation to its franchise area.

Jos DisCo had claimed that it restored partial power supply to some parts of Gombe, and that only 5 MegaWatts of supply was allocated to its distribution franchise on Saturday, 27th April, 2024.

However, TCN, described the claim as false and misleading, stating that it allocated 19MW each to Jos DisCo and Yola DisCo, as against the 5MW reported.

TCN, in a statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, explained that “due to the vandalism of the four towers on 330kV Jos-Gombe transmission line, its engineers improvised and were able to restore supply through its Jos-Bauchi-Gombe 132kV line which can only accommodate 38MW. As a result, TCN allocates 19MW each to Jos DisCo and Yola DisCo, which its Bauchi Region interfaces with”.

It noted that Jos DisCo has 19MW to supply its franchise in Bauchi State, Gombe and Ashaka, while Yola DisCo also has 19MW to serve its customers in Potiskum and Damaturu Town via Damagun 33kV feeder, Savannah and Yola Town.

It also frowned at the claim by Jos DisCo that it restored supply on the vandalised transmission lines as the power infrastructure in question is not Jos DisCo’s, but TCN’s. Noting that only TCN’s engineers worked on restoring bulk power through lines.

“We appeal that going forward, Jos DisCo simply states issues as they are to avoid misleading the public”, the statement noted.
