Once again the country goes into darkness as the Transmission Company of Nigeria on Monday confirmed another collapse of the national power grid.
The nationwide outage occurred in the afternoon, leaving power consumers across the country in total darkness.
Confirming the outage to FLIPTV, Ndidi Mbah, the TCN Public Relations Officer, said the restoration of the national power grid is already ongoing.
Mrs Mbah also added that the power supply has already been restored in Abuja and a few other areas. “Abuja has already been restored, so have different areas. Full restoration ongoing,” she said.
Today’s seizure marked the second collapse since mid-September when distribution firms nationwide reported unavailability of bulk electricity from federal infrastructure. President Bola Tinubu has promised an improved power supply to Nigerians, touting his capacity to make a dent in a challenge that has stunted the country’s development for decades.
