Nationwide Power Outage As National Electricity Grid Collapses
The national electricity grid has collapsed, leading to power outage across the country.
Two of the power distribution companies in the country, Kaduna Electric and Eko Electricity Distribution Company, announced the national grid collapse on Sunday afternoon.
Abdulazeez Abdullahi, head of corporate communication of the Kaduna Electricity Distribution PLC, confirmed the development in a statement issued on Sunday.
“Dear Esteemed Customers, 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,” the post read.
“Supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is back up. We regret all inconveniences”
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.”
