TCN Gives Update On National Power Grid Collapse



The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), a government establishment that manages the electricity transmission network in the country, has updated members of the public on the national grid collapse.

The national grid had collapsed in the early hours of Sunday, November 29, 2020, resorting to a nationwide blackout.

TCN stated that it had since commenced grid restoration, adding that power had been successfully restored to every part of the country, except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Markurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola, and Maiduguri axes.

The General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said, “the transmission company regrets to inform electricity consumers nationwide that at 11:25 am today, the nation’s electricity grid experienced multiple trippings, which led to the collapse of the system.

“TCN has since commenced grid restoration; power has been successfully restored to every part of the country except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Makurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola, and Maiduguri axes. An effort is however ongoing to ensure full restoration nationwide.

“We regret the inconvenience this has caused electricity consumers. The investigation would be conducted to establish the immediate and remote cause(s) of the multiple trippings as soon as the grid is fully restored — considering that the grid has been relatively stable in the last couple of months.”
