The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has described as false a report attributed to its Head of Public Affairs that there would be a national blackout on account of the ongoing nationwide labour strike.

TCN said the report was totally misleading.

In a statement by its management on Tuesday, the company also said the report was “mischievous and baseless,” adding that “TCN, through the Public Affairs Head, did not make such statement.”

The nation’s grid is “intact and supplying bulk electricity to distribution load centers nationwide,” the company said.

“As at when issuing this statement, the TCN National Control Centre Osogbo which controls bulk power transmission nationwide, is actively operational. We would appreciate that reports are made with a sense of responsibility not just to cause panic,” it said.
