The move is part of Tinubu’s endeavour to bolster the quality and quantity of electricity transmitted across the nation’s power grid.

The newly appointed Executive Directors include Oluwagbenga Ajiboye, overseeing Transmission Service Provider; Nafisatu Asabe-Ali, heading Independent System Operations; Ogini Chukwuka, responsible for Finance and Accounts; and Abiodun Afolabi, managing Human Resources and Corporate Services.

According to Mr. Ngelale, the President endorsed these appointments based on the appointees’ extensive experience, high competence, qualifications, character, and dedication.

Tinubu expects the appointees to fully commit to realizing his administration’s innovative and expansive energy vision, as well as to deliver excellent service to Nigerians.

TCN, which emerged from the amalgamation of the Transmission and Operations sectors of the defunct National Electric Power Authority in April 2004 and was incorporated in November 2005, plays a vital role in Nigeria’s power sector.

As one of the 18 unbundled business units under the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, TCN was granted a transmission license on July 1, 2006. Subsequently, on June 10, 2013, it received two licenses for electricity transmission and system operations.
