80% of TCN court cases involve right-of-way issues – MD


The Interim Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Mr. Usman Mohammed, has said that about 80% of all court cases that the TCN is currently facing border on right-of-way (RoW) issues, The Punch reports.

According to him, RoW concerns have remained a big problem confronting Nigeria’s power transmission expansion programme. He said; “In the TCN, about 80 per cent of our cases that are in court have to do with right-of-way issues. So it is a big problem.”

Mohammed, who doubles as the Chairman of the West African Power Pool, also said that the WAPP recently agreed to synchronise the electricity from Nigeria with that of other countries in the sub-region, adding that this was due to improvements in the frequency stability of the country’s electricity grid.
