FG can’t provide free electricity, it’s propaganda, Transmission Company of Nigeria discloses

Managing director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Usman Mohammed has disclosed that the federal government cannot provide free electricity to Nigerians.

The disclosure was made by the head of the agency owned by the Federal Government while speaking on Thursday, April 16.

Mohammed said the proposal for “free electricity” is mere propaganda.

Usman said;

“There is this information that went round that power is going to be free. I don’t know where that information came from. 

“But I can tell you that there is nothing like power is going to be free because the federal government cannot make power free. The federal government does not own the power.

“In the electricity industry, apart from transmission, which is just the transporter, all the other chains do not belong to the federal government. So, I cannot understand how somebody will concoct that information.

“But these are some of the people involved in propaganda who brand information that is very unnecessary, to be honest.

“I think at this stage what we need to do is to sustainably supply electricity and that is what we are doing.”
