Usman Mohammed, managing director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), says the federal government cannot provide free electricity to Nigerians.

The TCN is owned by the federal government, while the distribution and generation sub-sectors are controlled by private investors.

The DisCos had announced that they were working with the federal government to provide free two-month electricity as palliatives to cushion the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on citizens.

Speaking on Thursday in Abuja, Usman said the proposal is mere propaganda.

“There is this information that went round that power is going to be free. I don’t know where that information came from,” the TCN chief said.

“But I can tell you that there is nothing like power is going to be free because the federal government cannot make power free. The federal government does not own the power.
