The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says there is consistent growth in capability of the power sector under the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, said this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.

Mbah said on Wednesday, TCN successfully transmitted an all-time peak of 5,552.80 Megawatts (MW).

It was dispatched through the nation’s grid at a frequency of 50.08Hz.

The spokesperson noted that it surpassed the last peak generation of 5,520.40MW transmitted by October 30, 2020.

Acting Managing Director, Sule Abdulaziz, told industry players to work together to ensure sustained improvement of the power sector.

He assured that TCN will continue to build more substations and install additional transformers in substations nationwide.

“It is also restringing old transmission lines to further increase their capacity to transmit more bulk electricity for Discos nationwide”, Abdulaziz said.

The federal government’s target of 10,000MW by 2020 was not met.

Experts say with a population of 200 million, Nigeria requires at least 100,00MW of electricity.
