Total Power Outage as National Grid collapses again



A nationwide blackout has struck Nigeria as the country’s electricity grid suffered yet again a complete collapse on Thursday morning.

Reports indicate that at approximately 12:40 a.m. on September 14, 2023, the national electricity grid in Nigeria experienced a complete collapse, resulting in a significant loss of power supply to distributors across the country.

Multiple sources within the power sector and electricity distribution companies officially confirmed this development on Thursday morning, according to the Punch.

For instance, a notice titled ‘Total System Collapse’ was issued by the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company Plc on Thursday.

According to the notice,

The notice was signed by the Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh.

Meanwhile, the TCN, which manages Nigeria’s grid, has yet to make any statement about the development.

Just one week ago, the transmission firm in Nigeria rejoiced in what it called 400 days of unbroken power grid stability, emphasizing that the grid remained intact without any disruptions during this extensive timeframe.
