The entire country has been thrown into a blackout following the crashing of the Nigerian electricity grid.

APROKOREPUBLIC learnt that the grid crashed to zero megawatts on Wednesday after it developed a fault.

The development is coming a few weeks after a similar collapse occurred on June 12 and just 20 days after the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) activated a partial contract order for the Nigerian electricity market to guarantee 5,000MW and at least 4,000MW.

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company made this known in a text message forwarded to its customers.

The text reads, “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”.
