The national power grid suffered another system collapse on Wednesday.
It was gathered that the collapse occured at about 11:01 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
This was confirmed in a message by the Kaduna Electric on Twitter, signed by the Head of Corporate Communication, Abdulazeez Abdullahi.
“We regret to inform you that the power outage currently being experienced across our franchise- Kaduna, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states- is as a result of the collapse of the national grid.”
The electricity body also said that the power shall be restored soon
“Power supply shall be restored across our franchise as soon as the grid is restored by the Transmission Company of Nigeria team.” they tweeted.
Similarly, Eko Electricity Distribution Company Plc, covering the base of corporate Nigeria in Lagos said to its customers via text message: “Dear customer, there is a partial system collapse on the national grid. Our TCN partners are working to restore supply immediately. Please bear with us.”
The spokesperson for the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, could not be immediately reached for comments on the development.
This is not the first time the national electricity grid will collapse as a similar incident was recorded in February 2021, months after a similar incident was recorded in November 2020.
