The Acting managing director of the TCN Sule Ahmed Abdulaziz lauded all the players in the power sector value chain and attributed the gradual but steady improvement in the quantum of power delivery to collaboration by the sector players as well as the unbridled effort by the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Power, in setting the right environment for seamless operations.

He expressed optimism that stakeholders in the sector would continue to work together towards ensuring the continued increase in the quantum of power available to consumers nationwide.

TCN, he noted, is committed to working with the generation and distribution companies to ensure sustained improvement in the sector for the benefit of the nation.
