Nigeria was thrown into nationwide black out at about 12:35 am on Thursday, following the collapse of the country’s national electricity grid operated by TCN.
The unfortunate incident comes after the country enjoyed over 421 days of consistent grid stability.
A statement issued by Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, assured Nigerians that, restoration has reached advanced stages with power supply now available in the West, North Central, South, East, and a large portion of the Northern parts of the country.
TCN said it had been able to maintain 400 days of grid stability because, it developed and deployed in-house stop gap measures and tools that it has continued to use to manage the nations grid, ensuring its stability.
“The incident notwithstanding, TCN is determined to continue to do its best to ensure grid stability,” it said
Meanwhile, the collapse that occurred after a fire incident on Kanji/Jebba 330kV line 2, is being investigated, with the view to forestalling future occurrence and invariably further strengthen the grid.
