Nigeria news: Power grid collapses again after workers suspend strike
On Thursday, members of the National Union of Electricity Employees suspended their one-day strike after their action disrupted the country’s grid for several hours.
The Transmission Company of Nigeria commenced the restoration of the grid after the workers suspended their strike, only for the grid to collapse again on Friday afternoon.
In a notice on its Twitter handle on Friday, Eko Electricity Distribution Company, said, “Dear customers, at exactly 1309hrs (1.09pm) we experienced another system collapse, affecting parts of the country.

“The TCN team is working to restore supply. Please bear with us as we expect supply soon.”

The EEDC had expressed hope that the grid would be energised fully after the suspension of the strike, but this was punctured by another collapse on Friday.

Also, Jos Electricity Distribution Plc tweeted on Friday that “we regret to inform you that after brief restoration, the system has collapsed once again. However, we are optimistic, supply will be restored soon. We apologise for the inconveniences you are experiencing. Thank you for your continued patience.”

Power generation figures obtained from the TCN on Friday showed that the instability of the grid in the past two days led to a situation where no electricity was stated as generated for December 10, 11, 12 and 13.
