The Senior Staff Association of Electricity and Allied Companies (SSAEAC) has expressed satisfaction over the sacking of Mr Usman Mohammed, as the Managing Director of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
Mr Mohammed was relieved from his duties by the Minister of Power, Mr Mamman Sale, on Tuesday, and replaced him with Mr Sule Abdulaziz, in acting capacity as part of measures to reposition and improve performance of the nation’s power sector.
In a statement issued on Wednesday and signed by SSAEAC’s General Secretary, Umar Dubagari, the move by the Federal Government to liberate the hub of power sectors is a welcome relief.
“We foresaw this when we exposed his background and character which he covered up with falsified CV that misled the government.
“We are glad that the truth has prevailed with the announcement of the removal of recalcitrant and insubordinate MD TCN, which is a welcome relief to TCN staff and power sector operators.
While highlighting some alleged actions of Mr Mohammed, the union stated that the “atrocities of this man (Mohammed) are numerous and have just been cut short ignominiously, to the relief of the sector. We shall be pressing for his investigation and prosecution”, the statement read in part.
The union urged Nigerians to look forward to improved services in TCN since “workers are liberated from the stranglehold of the man aimed at personal gains.”
