National grid collapse, cause of outage – Eko Disco


The Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has attributed the current power outage on its network to what it called system collapse of the National Grid.

Mr Godwin Idemudia, the General Manager, Corporate Communications of the company, said on Monday that the outage which occurred about 2.27 p.m. on Sunday affected Ajah, Akangba and Agbara transmission stations.

According to him, the cause of the system collapse is still unknown.

Idemudia said gradual restoration of power supply had started.

“Though gradual restoration has commenced but a large part of the network are still without power supply.

“The situation is being monitored and the power restoration will be done as soon as the situation normalises.

“We regret any inconveniences caused by the outage,” he said in a statement.
