WAPP appoints Abdulaziz, TCN MD as Chairman

The West African Power Pool (WAPP), has appointed the Acting Managing Director/CEO of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Engr. Sule A. Abdulaziz as the new Chairman of the WAPP Executive Board.

The appointment was made during the 46th meeting of the WAPP Executive Board chaired by the Secretary General, Mr. Siengui Apollinaire KI which held via video conference on October 21st, 2020.

Engr. Abdulaziz was nominated by the former MD/CEO of PHCN, Engr. Joe Makoju who is a honorary member of WAPP. While making the nomination, Engr. Makoju noted that Engr. Abdulaziz is an expert in engineering with vast experience in the electricity sector, and therefore would perform creditably as the new WAPP Executive Board Chairman. His proposal was endorsed by MD’s and DG’s of other members of the Board.

In his acceptance speech, the Ag. MD/CEO, Engr, Sule Abdulaziz, thanked the board members and the honorary member of the Executive Board for his nomination as the Chairman of the Board, and assured them of his total commitment to the overall objective of the regional electricity body.

He expressed the need to move the pool to the next level of operational efficiency and solicited the support of member utilities, especially members of the Executive Board in this regard. He equally encouraged all WAPP member utilities to continue to collaborate actively with the secretariat to ensure effective and efficient coordination and implementation of the all WAPP programmes.

Urging members to ensure prompt payment of their contributions to the pool, he informed the meeting that TCN’s contribution will be remitted very soon as the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria had graciously approved the payment of TCN’s contribution.

The West African Power Pool (WAPP) was created by Decision A/DEC.5/12/99 of the 22nd Summit of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government and dopted during the 29th Summit of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government held in Niamey.
