Nigeria recorded a milestone in its quest to achieve a stable power supply as the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) announced Thursday that it successfully transmitted 5,420.3MW of power through the national grid at a frequency of 50.10Hz AT 9.15 pm on August 18, 2020, according to a statement by Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN.

“This is the highest ever recorded in the nation’s power sector to date, surpassing the previous peak of 5,377.80MW recorded as the 1st of August 2020, by 42.50MW,”, the General Manager, Public Affairs of TCN, Ndidi Mbah said.

Mbah said the company said the gradual but steady improvement in electricity delivery in the nation’s power sector is attributable to the keen interest of the current administration of President Mohammadu Buhari in piloting programmes and projects geared towards growing the power sector as well as the collective effort of all power sector players in the value chain.

He pledged that TCN is committed to working assiduously to further stabilize, rehabilitate and expand the grid and urge Nigerians to lend their support by safeguarding electricity installations nationwide.
