The nation’s power generation dropped by about one thousand six hundred megawatts on Monday from over four thousand one hundred megawatts on Sunday.

Data from the Nigeria Electricity System Operator, an arm of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, showed that generation stood at about two thousand four hundred megawatts.

According to the data, total power generation rose from zero megawatt to about three thousand, two hundred on Saturday.

The power grid reportedly collapsed on Wednesday and Thursday last week, worsening electricity supply in many parts of the country.

The Managing Director of TCN, Usman Mohammed described the system collapse as the worst ever since he took over the leadership of the company.
