Outage as national grid collapses
The national electricity grid yesterday experienced system collapse, leaving residents in total darkness across the federation.
Indeed, while the network rose to 5,114 megawatts (MW) on Tuesday, a feat not reached for over two months, bulk power available to 11 distribution companies (DisCos) drastically reduced as the failure occurred about 2:33p.m.
The Public Relations Manager for Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), Oyebode Fadipe, said the development limited power supply by his organisation to 20 megawatts.
