As part of efforts aimed at addressing the challenge of frequent system collapse and delivering more reliable electricity, the Manitoba Hydro led-management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has promised a new phase aimed at boosting staff productivity.
To this end, the chief executive officer of the company, Don Priestman, has said more emphasis would now be placed on transfer of skills, staff training and adequate reward for outstanding performance.
This according to Priestman, in of statement issued yesterday by the TCN’s general manager, public affairs, Dave Ifabiyi, was aimed at attaining a reliable power supply which in turn was key to the development of any country as it serves as a catalyst for economic growth of that country.
Priestman stated this while speaking in Abuja at an event organised to recognise and commend 10 staff members of System Operations Sector of TCN who through their initiative and coordinated efforts prevented an imminent system collapse which could have caused great national economic loss.
While identifying inadequate funding, obsolete equipment and other daunting challenges as factors militating against the smooth operation of the TCN, Priestman assured that no stone would be left unturned towards achieving the mandate of the government in delivering reliable power supply to Nigerians.
The TCN boss further assured that a reward package has been introduced for diligent, resourceful and dedicated staff that help in the achievement of the set corporate goals.
