Nigeria’s Ministry of Power reveals how they supplied light nationwide after the national grid collapsed.

The collapse of Nigeria’s national grid two times in a week left millions of Nigerians in darkness.

During the blackout, electricity consumers across Nigeria, particularly in Lagos, Enugu, Ibadan, and Anambra, were left in the dark.

The national grid is a public electricity power system that supplies light to homes, offices, and other public places all over Nigeria.

According to BBC Pidgin, light has started coming in small amounts in some of the affected areas.

But steady public power supply all over Nigeria is still a headache, even in the country’s economy.

Just over 4000MW of electricity is what Nigeria gets on the grid to supply over 200 million Nigerians.

The Federal Government of Nigeria explained the cause of the national grid collapse in Nigeria.
