By Adedapo Adesanya
Nigerians will have to contend with a total blackout as the national electricity grid of Nigeria has collapsed again.
Reports emerged across the country that customers Ikeja Electricity, Eko Electricity and other nine power distribution companies have reported no power supply on Monday.
As of the time of this report, only Eko Electricity has issued a statement confirming this development.
The Disco said in the statement, “Dear esteemed customer, we regret to inform you of a total system collapse on the national grid at 10:40 am today, leading to outages across our network,”
“We are closely monitoring the situation with our TCN partners to determine the cause and a timeline for resolution,” it added.
Nigeria has recently experienced a poor electricity supply. It is not the first time the national grid is collapsing.
