Reps Vow to stop unjustifiable foreign electricity contracts



The House of Representatives says it will not allow the Transmission Company of Nigeria to give contracts to foreigners at the expense of qualified Nigerians capable of executing such projects.

It, therefore, charged the TCN management to consider local content in its project execution processes in line with the President’s executive order on local content.

The House Committee Chairman on Power, Magaji Aliyu, said this when he led his committee members on an oversight function to the corporate headquarters of TCN in Abuja

The Acting Managing Director of TCN, Ahmed Abdulaziz, told his guests that to strengthen the country’s transmission sector there must be some transformation in the system.
