The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has recorded a partial system collapse, which disrupted power supply to Lagos and other cities in Nigeria.

An investigation by The Daily, https://thedaily-ng.com, showed that the incident disrupted economic and other activities for several hours.

However, it should be noted that Nigeria has recorded several power system collapses in recent times, some of which were attributed to equipment failure and vandalism.

For instance, in November 2020, TCN spokesperson, Ndidi Mbah stated in a statement that, “The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) regrets to inform electricity consumers nationwide that at 11:25am today, the nation’s electricity grid experienced multiple trippings, which led to the collapse of the system. 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.”

She also added: “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 relatively stable in the last couple of months.”
