Again, National Grid Collapses For The Second Time In One Month

Again, National Grid Collapses For The Second Time In One Month

Nigerians have been plunged into darkness, as the nation’s national grid collapsed again early Monday morning, April 15.

This is the second collapse in less than a month after it collapsed on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

According to the data supplied by the National System Operator, a semi-autonomous unit in the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, showed that the grid collapsed around 3 a.m.

Meanwhile, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company Plc, EEDC, on Monday alerted its customers of a total system collapse, causing blackout in the entire Southeast.

EEDC in a statement issued by its Head of Corporate Communications, Emeka Eze, said the incident occured at about 2am on Monday. The company, however, assured residents of the region that efforts are being put in place to ensure that normalcy is restored soon.

The statement reads, “This resulted in the loss of supply to all our interface TCN stations. Consequently, we were unable to provide service to our customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States.

“However, the situation is gradually being resolved as we received supplies at Awada TCN station, Onitsha, at 7:30am.

“We are in constant communication with the relevant authorities awaiting full restoration of supply by the National Control Centre, NCC, Oshogbo”.

The latest collapse came barely a week after the controversial review of Band A power consumers increased tariffs by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, NERC.
