BREAKING Blackout Hits Nigeria As National Grid Collapses Again

National grid

Once again, another national grid collapse in Nigeria has resulted to blackout nationwide, fresh reports have shown.

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC, in a statement posted on its X account said power outage being experienced in its franchise areas is as a result of a system failure from the national grid at 11:21 hours on Sunday.

“The Management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc (AEDC) wishes to inform its valued customers that the power outage being experienced is as a result of a system failure from the national grid at 11:21 hours today, 4th February, 2024, which has led to a nationwide power outage.

“Be rest assured that we are working with the relevant stakeholders to restore power as soon as the grid is stabilized,” the statement said.

The development comes after electricity supply dropped in parts of the country over constraints in gas supply to electricity generation companies.

In 2023, Nigerians experienced at least three nationwide blackouts on September 14, 19 and December 11.

Recall that barely two days ago, the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, had begged Nigerians to be patient with the government over challenges facing the country’s power sector.
