Nigeria’s power grid collapsed after a disruption the previous day following the industrial strike by workers across the country.

Different electricity distribution companies said the grid collapsed despite the fact that workers had suspended their strike action.

Earlier, members of the National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE suspended their one-day strike after the action disrupted the nation’s network for hours.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN started the restoration of the grid after the workers suspended their strike, only for the network to collapse again Friday afternoon.

Power generation figures obtained from the TCN, 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.

Eko Electricity Distribution Company in a notice on its Twitter handle, expressed hope that the grid would be energised fully after the suspension of the strike, but this was punctured by another collapse on Friday.
