According to her, “the re-stringing of the conductors was completed yesterday 3rd June, 2024, and contractors have reconnected the jumper on tower 282, making it ready for the transmission of bulk electricity”.

She recalled that when the vandalized towers were discovered on April 22, 2024. TCN promptly mobilized contractors and TCN supervising engineers to the site of the incident to immediately commence repairs.

She explained that TCN promised to complete the repairs and restore supply by May 27, 2024. However, the collapse of the fourth tower during the re-stringing process delayed the completion.

Nevertheless, she disclosed that the four towers have since been completed, and the line is now ready for bulk power transmission.

Mrs. Mbah said, the company appreciates the patience and support of the governors and people in the North Eastern part of the nation during the period of the tower reconstruction work.
