Though Nigeria’s power transmission network currently hovers around 8, 000MW, the Federal Government, yesterday said there was no going back on achieving 20,000 megawatts of electricity transmission by 2021.
Speaking during the commissioning of two units of 60MVA transformers, which is expected to deliver 96 megawatts (MW) of electricity at the Suleja substation in Niger State, Managing Director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Usman Gur Mohammed said though it is only three years to the 20,000MW target, the plan would be achieved, stressing that the transformers needed for the improvement have been procured, while in-house capacity of TCN engineers have been upgraded.
