Reps to probe TCN over delay of $300 million power project


The House of Representatives says it will investigate the delay in the execution of the $300 million Nigeria Electricity and Gas Improvement Project (NEGIP) by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Premium Times reports.

In a resolution which followed a motion on matters-of-urgent-public-importance by Yunusa Abubakar (Gombe-APC) at plenary on Tuesday, the house mandated its Committee on Power to immediately probe the interim management of the company.

Moving the motion, Mr. Abubakar expressed worry that the TCN had not been able to implement the NEGIP project and as such moves to investigate the reasons behind the delay had become essential.
