The current power outage being experienced in parts of the country is as a result of the collapsed national grid.
Two of the power distribution companies in the country, Eko Electricity Distribution Company, Lagos, and Kaduna Electric announced the national grid collapse on Sunday afternoon in separate Twitter messages to their customers.
Tweeting on its official handle, @EKEDP, Eko Electric said: “Dear customer,
