The Eko Electricity Distribution Company on Monday announced the collapse of national power grid, worsening the blackout being experienced by households and businesses in some parts of the country
This is coming less than a month after similar incident occurred. Both Kaduna and Eko Electricity Distribution Companies confirmed the collapse, which occurred around 1:00 pm on Monday.
The grid had, on July 28, 2021, suffered a total collapse, which the Transmission Company of Nigeria attributed to the loss of 611 megawatts at two power stations.
In a message to its customers on its Facebook page, the Eko Electricity Distribution Company said, “We regret to inform you of a system collapse on the national grid that’s causing outages across our network. We are working with our TCN partners to restore supply as soon as possible. Please bear with us.”
Also, Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company said, “We sincerely apologise for the power outage in our franchise states which is due to a system collapse from the national grid. The supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is back up. We regret any inconvenience this may cause all our customers.”
