Again, National Electricity Grid Stops Working

Once again, Nigeria’s national electricity grid has almost completely stopped working as the collapse severely affected major parts of the country, with the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, included.

The collapse happened on Sunday towards nighttime and caused total blackout as records have it that this is the 5th time, almost consecutively, the national electricity grid would fold up and stop working.

All the collapse happened just in 2022 as it would be recalled that the distribution companies earlier spoke to their customers about the present conditions of the electricity supply.

However, the power distribution companies hinted that the collapse happened by 6.49pm on Sunday and they were forced to shut down outgoing electricity feeders.
