The nation’s power grid has suffered its first collapse in the month of August, plunging parts of the country into a blackout.

In a message to its customers on their Facebook pages, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKDC) and the Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company said the collapse occurred around 1:00pm on Monday.

 

According to the EKDC, the electricity grid collapse was attributed to the loss of 611 megawatts at two power stations.

 

 

It 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 reacting, KEDC pologised to Nigerians for the power outage, saying that it was due to a system collapse from the national grid.

 

It said, “We sincerely apologise for the power outage in our franchise states which is due to a system collapse from the national grid. Supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is back up.

 

“We regret any inconvenience this may cause all our customers.”
