Removal Of TCN MD Will Improve Electricity Sector – SSAEAC


The Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC) has said the that the sack of the Managing Director of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Mr. Usman Gur Mohammed would improve services in the sector, while the union hailed President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman for liberating its workers.

This was contained in a statement signed by the SSAEAC General Secretary, Umar Dubagari and made available to newsmen on Wednesday.

The Union said after the MD’s sack, Nigerians should look forward to improved services in TCN since workers are liberated from the fear stranglehold of the man aimed at personal gains.

According to the SSAEAC, we hereby send a heartfelt appreciation to President/Commander-in-Chief and the Honourable Ministers of Power, for liberating the hub of power sectors (TCN) from the stranglehold of a despot by relieving the former MD of his misfit position.

“We foresaw this when we exposed his background and character which he covered up with falsified CV that misled the government. We are glad that the truth has prevailed with the announcement of the removal of recalcitrant and insubordinate MD TCN, which is a welcome relief to TCN staff and power sector operators”, the statement said.

SSAEAC highlighted his impunities as follows: abandonment of TCN structure for cronism and nepotism, manipulation of procurement processes with attendant financial fleecing of TCN.

Others include : Clearing and diversion of over 700 Containers from the ports without documentation of contents. Loss of 20 power transformers and substations worth over N30B in just over three years, a humongous loss to Nigeria.

“Connivance with compromised staff to fleece TCN of assets and resources.

  1. Destruction of unionism through sponsorship of internal crises.
    Connivance and use of a union to act as his blackmail machinery against government and his superiors.

“Quarrelsomeness with Co-sector operators with uncouth language and character. Enslavement of workers by instigating spying and reporting on each other – working in fear of his victimization.

“Abuse of his power in dispensing official rights of workers like foreign medical trips. General emasculation of rights of all except through intimidation and harassment. The atrocities of this man are numerous and have just been cut short ignominiously, to the relief of the sector”, the union added.

SSAEAC therefore called for investigation and prosecution of the sacked MD.
