TCN: Coalition Debunks Corruption Allegation Against Engr. Sule Abdulaziz

A coalition of over 180 Civil Society Organisations in Nigeria, Civil Society Groups for Good Governance, CSGGG has debunked and exonerated the management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN of any corruption and underhand dealings.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, the convener of CSGGG, Comrade Ogakwu Dominic, expressed concern over the accusations circulating against the management of the Transmission Company.

“As CSOs, we are duty-bound to investigate any information we receive and ensure none are unjustly punished without appearing sentimental, self-seeking, or unpatriotic.

“We have engaged the management of TCN, and it is on record that the MD/CEO is a man who has instilled a standing and verifiable tradition of prudent management of scarce resources, leading to notable achievements.

“These accomplishments will soon become visible as part of the Renewed Hope Agenda of the current administration, as the decades of rot in the sector can not be wished away overnight,” he said.

Dominic said the allegations revolve around claims made by an online news outlet, suggesting that TCN’s managing director purchased an exotic car for the Hon. Minister of Power as a bribe.

He, however, said TCN management clarified that the vehicle was procured as part of official responsibilities to support the minister’s office.

He further highlighted the challenges facing TCN, including disruptions caused by bandits, gas supply shortages, and unethical conduct by generation and distribution companies.

“We urge Nigerians to proffer solutions to the problems facing the power sector rather than politicizing them,” he said.

Ogakwu emphasized that the continuous harassment of TCN’s management is taking an unpatriotic turn. He cautioned against unjust intimidation and harassment, advocating for transparency and adherence to due process.

He said, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s endorsement of Engr. Sule Abdulaziz’s continuation in the office reflects a commitment to professionalism and diligence in the power sector.

“We commend and urge the management of TCN to remain committed to fast-tracking solutions to the challenges bedevilling the power sector,” he said.

The organisation’s stance underscores the need for collaborative efforts to address Nigeria’s power sector challenges and achieve stable electricity supply for all citizens.
