The immediate past Managing Director of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Mohammed Gor Usman has said he would not vacate his seat as the Managing Director until he sees President Mohammadu Buhari’s approval letter.
“I was not appointed on page of newspapers and there was approval of the President. I will insist on the approval of the President before I vacate office. Once I see the approval of the President, I will handover”, he said
Before this statement, Usman had said in a response to his sack by the Minister of Power, Mamman Saley that he has been expecting his sack since 2017.
Usman said he was not surprise of what happened to him.
He said: “Like I always say; in a society like ours, anyone who work the way I did should expect sack everyday. So, I have been expecting this since the day I assumed duty in February 2017. No surprises in what happened to me yesterday”
Usman was sacked via a Press statement by the Minister of Power, Mamman Saley on Tuesday.
“The irony is while I was requested to assist in solving TCN lingering issues through a dignified engagement between Nigeria and AfDB in which it took me six months after PMB approval to take the assignment and I did my best; I was sacked through press release without even a courtesy of informing me before it was announced. Yet, I am grateful to PMB and those who participated in inviting me to serve Nigeria. I have no single regret or ill feeling because of the way it ended.”, he stated.
