Nigeria, on Thursday, suffered another national grid collapse ahead of the Easter holiday, which commenced today.

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company confirmed the development to its customers through its social media handles.

The AEDC said the national grid collapsed at about 4:28 pm, plunging the country into darkness.

“Dear valued customers, please be informed that the current power outage is due to a system failure from the national grid. The system collapsed at about 16:28 hours today, 28 March 2024, causing the outage currently being experienced across our franchise area.

“We appeal for your understanding as all stakeholders are working hard to restore normal supply,” the Abuja DisCo said.

Similarly, the Eko Electricity Distribution Company said: “Dear valued customer, kindly be informed there was a system collapse at 16:28hrs, which has resulted in a loss of power supply across our network.

“We are currently working with our partners as we hope for speedy restoration of the grid. We will keep you updated as soon as the power supply is restored. Kindly bear with us.”

Confirming the incident, Mrs Ndidi Mba, spokesperson for the Transmission Company of Nigeria, acknowledged the system collapse.

She stated that efforts were underway to recover from the collapse, with power supply restored in Benin, Abuja, and other parts of the nation.
