TCN Managing Director Abdulaziz Has Been Confirmed By Buhari

With effect from April 4, Mr Sule Abdulaziz has been confirmed as the substantive Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

Mrs Ndidi Mbah, TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, said in an Abuja statement on Wednesday that Abdulaziz had been the company’s Acting Managing Director since May 19, 2020, until his confirmation.
Abdulaziz was the General Manager (Projects) at the company’s headquarters before becoming the acting managing director, according to Mbah.
“He was then promoted to Regional Transmission Manager of TCN’s Shiroro and Abuja Regions, where he was in charge of a variety of operational and management duties, including the delivery of bulk power to distribution companies” (Discos).

“He was also in charge of equipment maintenance and repairs, transmission network reliability, security and expansion, inventory and stock management,” Mbah said, adding that Abdulaziz was in charge of the company’s overall supervision, which included transmission projects, transmission network operations and maintenance, and system operations.
Market administration, human resources management, and chief accounting officer were among his other tasks, according to her.
TCN achieved significant milestones in project execution and delivery, reliable grid management, and human resources management that improved personnel performance and productivity when he was acting managing director.

“Abdulaziz embarked on initiatives and execution that significantly transformed TCN from a faltering successor company in the post-privatisation era to a viable national and sub-regional transmission company,” she said, adding that he worked with an executive management team of four Executive Directors.
Abdulaziz also distinguished himself as a good human resources manager, according to Mbah, who brought industrial unity to TCN and maintained a non-interference and non-divisive approach in dealing with labor unions and union issues.
She added that the TCN CEO boosted capacity development by investing strategically in staff training and retraining to close skills gaps, among other things.
