Following the National Grid Collapse, which occurred on 29th of November 2020, power supply has now been restored in some parts of the country.
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) stated on Saturday, through its General Manager of Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, that the nation’s electricity grid experienced multiple trippings, which led to the collapse of the system.
However, Mbah noted that power has been restored in some parts of the country.
“TCN has since commenced grid restoration; power has been successfully restored to every part of the country, except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Markurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola and Maidugiri axes.
“Effort is however ongoing to ensure full restoration nationwide. We regret the inconvenience this has caused electricity consumers.
“Investigations would be conducted to establish the immediate and remote cause(s) of the multiple trippings as soon as the grid is fully restored – considering that the grid had been l relatively stable in the last couple of months,” he said.
In their social media handles, Electricity Distribution Companies, confirmed the incident, with some claiming the restoration of power in certain areas.
Ikeja Electric stated that it had restored power to Maryland and Ilupeju Transmission Stations as 14:55hrs.
