The organisation said the purported retirement of Okonkwo was illegal as no MD had such powers.
“ Accordingly, the Managing Director of the TCN, Usman Gur Mohammed has been removed from office with immediate effect. He is being replaced with Engr Sule Ahmed Abdulaziz, as Managing Director, in acting capacity.”
The minister also confirmed the appointment of four directors who had been in acting capacity in the company.
The directors are Mr Victor Adewunmi, Executive Director, Transmission Services Provider, M.J Lawal, Executive Director, Independent Systems Operators, Ahmed Isa-Dutse, Executive Director, Finance and Accounts and Justin Dodo, Executive Director, Human Resources and Corporate Services.
