Sunday blackout: Transmission Company of Nigeria admits national grid’s collapse, plans probe

The Transmission Company of Nigeria has said it will conduct investigations to establish the cause(s) of the multiple tripping that led to the collapse of the nation’s power grid on Sunday.

The national grid collapsed on Sunday morning, plunging parts of the country into a total blackout for hours.

Before the TCN confirmed the development, two of the power distribution companies in the country, Kaduna Electric and Eko Electricity Distribution Company, had informed their customers that the collapse of the national gird had led to loss of power.

The government-owned TCN, which manages the grid, said in a statement that the system collapsed at 11:25am on Sunday.

It said it had since commenced grid restoration, adding that power had been successfully restored to every part of the country, except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Markurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola and Maiduguri axes.

The General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said, “Effort is, however, ongoing to ensure full restoration nationwide.
