Power Restored in Nigeria After ‘Total Blackout’ Caused By National Grid Failure

“The fire has been fully arrested and over half of the connections are now up and the rest will be fully restored in no time,” Power Minister Adelabu.The Nigerian Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has announced that a recent fire incident, which caused a significant disruption to the national power grid, has been successfully contained. More than half of the connections have already been restored, and the remaining ones will be back in operation shortly.
The power grid, managed by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) from its base in Osogbo, Osun State, had experienced a major failure in the early hours of Thursday, resulting in widespread power outages across much of the country.
The minister stated on X, formerly known as Twitter, “We are on top of the situation and speedy restoration is in progress.
“The fire has been fully arrested and over half of the connections are now up and the rest will be fully restored in no time.
“Delay in update was deliberate, so as not to cause panic and to also be able to update on progress of remedial actions taken so far.”
He mentioned that this measure was put in place to prevent individuals with malicious intentions in the realms of both economics and security from exploiting any reported situation.
The EEDC had issued a statement announcing a disruption in the power supply across its network, resulting in the suspension of services to customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo states.
Similarly, the Eko Disco also faced disruptions as all of their feeder systems encountered an outage.
The collapse unfortunately occurred a few weeks following TCN’s announcement of more than 400 consecutive days of uninterrupted stability in the country’s power grid.
