Again, Total Blackout Across Nigeria As National Grid Collapse
Nigeria is currently experiencing a black power outage as the national grid collapsed early morning on Thursday.
The failure occurs just a few weeks after the Nigerian electricity sector’s Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) celebrated more than a year with no grid failures, a characteristic that has distinguished Nigeria.
A statement by the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC), said the collapse occurred around 12:40am which has resulted to the loss of supply currently being experienced across the network.
“Due to this development, all our interface TCN stations are out of supply, and we are unable to provide service to our customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States.”
It was gathered that power transmission dropped to 273 megawatts of electricity coming from two out of the over 27 electricity generation.
This is the first time of witnessing the situation under the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
There were multiple incidents of grid collapse under former President Muhammadu Buhari
