Nigeria: TCN Warns Public Against Bush Burning Around PHCN Installations

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) on Thursday warned the general public against bush burning around PHCN installations.

Mr Jonathan Ndiagwaralukwe, the Executive Director, Systems Operations of the TCN, gave the warning in Abuja.

Ndiagwaralukwe said that bush burning was having negative consequences on PHCN infrastructure and installations.

"Our major challenge is that the harmatan breeze spreads fire faster and such fire can destroy the infrastructure that was built by the government for the benefit of the people. We call on people to report to the police anybody who engages in bush burning around PHCN's installations," he said.
