The managing director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, Usman Gur Mohammed has been sacked.
This development was announced via a statement issued by the Minister of Power, Mamman Sale, signed by his spokesman, Artimas Aaron on Tuesday evening. His replacement, Sule Abdulaziz, has been ordered to take over immediately.
“As part of continuing measures to reposition and improve the performance of the Power Sector in the country, the Honorable Minister of Power Engr. Sale Mamman hereby announces major changes at the Transmission Company of Nigeria”
“Accordingly, the Managing Director of the TCN, Usman Gur Mohammed has been removed from office with immediate effect. He is being replaced with Engr. Sule Ahmed Abdulaziz, as Managing Director, in acting capacity.”
It’s unclear the reason for the sack. Before joining TCN, Mohammed was the Principal Power Utility Transformation Specialist in the AfDB’s Nigeria Country Department.
