National grid constant collapse is due to obsolete equipment – House of Reps member

Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Power and member representing Birnin Kudu/Buji Federal Constituency of Jigawa State, Magaji Da’u Aliyu, has blamed the frequent national grid collapse on use of obsolete equipments for power transmission by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

Aliyu who kicked against the planned privatisation of power transmission in the country through the TCN during his speech at a reception organised in his honour by his constituents in Birnin Kudu, Jigawa State, stated that privatisation in the power sector has been counter-productive as it had not yielded the required result.

The lawmaker further revealed that members of the House of Representatives are planning to bring in stakeholders in the Power sector to brainstorm on solutions to the sector’s challenges and how to ensure efficient power delivery across the country.
