The Management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) met with the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), to urgently address the power supply issue faced by businesses within the Idu Industrial Zone, an industrial hub situated within the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).

Ibrahim Usman, Chairman, MAN Infrastructural Committee and Infrastructural Power Development Committee, to discuss the best ways to help increase bulk power supply to industrial layout, on Thursday.
The layout houses offices of public parastatals such as the Nigeria Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria, National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI).
