Nigeria's electricity grid again collapsed on Sunday, November 28, leaving parts of the country in total blackout .

Two of the power distribution companies in the country, Kaduna Electric and Eko Electricity Distribution Company, announced the national grid collapse on Sunday.

Kaduna Electric via its Twitter handle said, “We regret to inform you that the loss of power supply in our franchise – Kaduna, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states – is as a result of the collapse of the national grid. The collapse occurred at about 11:26 am this morning.

“Supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is back up. We regret all inconveniences,” the Disco added.

EKEDC, in a text message sent to its customers, said, “Dear customer, there is a system collapse on the national grid. Supply will be restored as soon as the issue is resolved. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

The grid, which is being managed by government-owned Transmission Company of Nigeria, has continued to suffer system collapse over the years amid a lack of spinning reserve that is meant to forestall such occurrences.

Recall, on June 2, the national power grid, operated from Osogbo in Osun State, a collapsed plunging the entire country into darkness.

The grid collapsed in May due to industrial unrest, after it had earlier collapse in April which heightened poor power supply.
