Blackout Looms As FG Disconnects Discos From National Grid Over Debt

THE national grid has collapsed for the first time in 2024, which has resulted in a nationwide blackout.

Trojan News reports that the grid collapsed 11:21am on Sunday.

The situation led to shut down of all 20 power plants, except Ibom Power with 31 megawatts.


Confirming the development, the management of Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc (AEDC) said the power outage was a result of a system failure from the national grid “at 11:21 hours today, 4th February 2024 which has led to a nationwide power outage.”

While appealing for patience among its customers, it assured that it is working with the relevant stakeholders to restore power as soon as the grid is stabilized.
