Power supply has been restored nationwide after the national electricity grid collapsed earlier Thursday morning.
The development created anxiety across the country as Nigerians feared it could worsen the already epileptic power supply.
Confirming the restoration of the grid, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (Eko Electric), said power supply has been restored.
“Dear Valued Customer, Kindly be informed that power supply has been restored from the grid. Thank you for your patience”, Eko Electricity Distribution Company wrote on their X account.
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) had earlier confirmed the collapse of the national grid but assured that efforts are in top gear to fix the problem.
“The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, hereby notes that grid restoration nationwide is in progress and has reached advanced stages with power supply now available in the West, North Central, South, ensuring its stability,” the agency’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah said.
While explaining the reason for the collapse, the TCN said it “occurred after a fire incident on Kanji/Jebba 330kV line 2” but added that the matter “is being investigated, with the view to forestalling future occurrence and invariably further strengthening the grid.
“The incident notwithstanding, TCN is determined to continue to do its best to ensure grid stability,” the TCN assured.
