BREAKING: Nigeria’s electricity grid collapses again, sixth time in 2024

Nigeria’s electricity grid suffered another collapse at approximately 2:42 am on Monday.

Generation plummeted to 64.70 megawatts, with only one generation company, Ibom Power, remaining active, as per data from the Independent System Operator (ISO), a division of the Transmission Company of Nigeria.

This marks the sixth collapse of the grid in 2024 alone. As of 8 am on Monday, the ISO data indicated that the grid was generating 266.50 megawatts of electricity from Okpai, Geregu, and Ibom power.

Jos DisCo, confirming the collapse, stated, “The current outage being experienced within our franchise States is a result of the loss of power supply from the national grid.

“This loss occurred in the early hours of Monday, leading to power disruptions across their feeder networks.”

Dr. Friday Adakole Elijah, the head of Corporate Affairs at Jos DisCo, expressed optimism for restoring the grid to ensure regular power supply to customers.
