Nigeria has plunged into darkness once again as the nation’s electricity grid collapsed, Guardian Nigeria reports.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) managed grid went down at approximately 11:51 AM on Sunday, reducing the system’s capacity from 2,407 megawatts to a mere 31MW by noon and reaching zero by 1 PM.

Despite the Federal Government privatizing the sector over eleven years ago, the grid remains unreliable, failing consumers on more than 141 occasions.

Distribution companies are already alerting customers about the situation, even as the generation companies have repeatedly expressed concerns over the impact on the safety and durability of their equipment.

According to the system operator’s platform, all 20 power plants, except Ibom Power with 31 megawatts, were offline by 11:51 AM.
