Many of the nation’s feeders are currently out of service, and several distribution companies have confirmed that the system collapsed in the early hours of Thursday.
The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) announced in a statement that a system failure happened at 6:41 this morning, resulting in a total interruption of supply across their network.
After the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) declared that the country’s electrical grid had attained uninterrupted stability for more than 400 straight days, the subsequent grid collapse occurred only a few weeks later.
Nigeria has long faced difficulties in its energy sector, creating considerable barriers to its population’ daily life and economic growth. Despite the sector’s privatization, Nigerians have yet to experience reliable electricity supplies.
These electricity challenges are the result of a complicated web of problems, such as aging infrastructure, poor maintenance, and insufficient investment in the power sector.
