This is the sixth time the country’s national grid will be collapsing in 2022.

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company confirmed that the grid collapse occurred at about 11:27 am.

“Dear customers, we regret to inform you of a system collapse on the national grid at precisely 11:27 am today, Wednesday, July 20. We are in talks with the Transmission Company of Nigeria to ascertain the cause of the collapse and a possible restoration timeline.

“We will keep you updated on the situation,” the Disco said via its Twitter handle on Wednesday.

According to TheNation, of all the distribution companies, only the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) recorded 40Mw at that material time with others recording 0Mw.

Nigeria’s power grid had collapsed twice in March and twice again in April this year, as the power generation on the system had continued to fluctuate due to various concerns such as gas constraints, water management challenges, and gas pipeline vandalism, among others.

Before this, the most recent of such collapse was on Sunday, June 12, 2022.
