On the Governor’s visit to the site, Engrs. from the Transmission Company of Nigeria supported by the officials from the state ministry of Housing and Energy have been working tirelessly to restore electricity to Maiduguri.

The Governor explained that a temporary measure will be put in place to restore electricity to Maiduguri while Government will collaborate with the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) for a permanent solution.

“You have seen the level of destruction, they used IED bomb to destroy the tower. We are here to see things for ourselves, insha Allah we will fast track the process of rehabilitating the damaged structures.” Zulum said.
