The national power grid in Nigeria experienced a nationwide collapse, resulting in a complete power outage across the country. The collapse occurred around 1 pm on Sunday, causing electricity generation to plummet from 2,407 MW to 31 MW by noon and eventually reaching zero MW an hour later. The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), responsible for managing the grid, confirmed that all 20 power plants, except Ibom Power with 31 MW, were offline during the collapse. Power distribution companies blamed the grid collapse for the widespread blackouts, affecting states such as Kaduna, Sokoto, Zamfara, and Kebbi. This incident follows previous grid collapses in December 2023 and September 2023. Despite years of investments and privatisation policy, Nigeria continues to suffer embarrassing grid collapses and poor energy provision.
