The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that it successfully restored electricity to the North Eastern state of Bauchi, Yobe, Gombe, Taraba, Adamawa, and Borno on the 24th of September, 2018, after the Jos-Gombe 300KV transmission line tripped on fault.
In a statement signed by the General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, TCN said the maintenance crew completed patrol of the Jos axis of the transmission line yesterday but was unable to complete the Gombe axis due to time, as it became dark. Today, however, the transmission lines patrol crew completed the remaining patrol of the Gombe axis and energized the line.
With the completion of the line trace and the resolution of the fault, normal transmission of electricity through Jos-Gombe Transmission line to the six North Eastern States previously affected by the line was restored.
TCN expressed gratitude to the Governors and good people of the North Eastern States for their patience and understanding during the period of the outage and pledged to continue to work to ensure continued expansion of the transmission network as well as ensure prompt resolution to any fault on the nation’s transmission network.
