DisCos have sent messages explaining the challenge to customers.

Nigerians on Tuesday lamented the national power grid collapse that has yet again resulted in epileptic power supply and poor business operations.

On Monday, the national power grid collapsed for the second time in a period of one month, throwing many households and businesses in parts of Nigeria into darkness.

The collapse occurred around noon on Monday, according to information sourced from the electricity distribution companies.

Earlier on July 28, the grid had suffered a total collapse, which the Transmission Company of Nigeria attributed to the loss of 611 megawatts at two power stations.

Jude Okonkwo, a Lagos-based business owner, lamented the impact of the collapse on his business, calling on the government to find a lasting solution to the incessant grid collapse.

“This is almost becoming a monthly occurrence and it is not good for business and the economy at all,” he told PREMIUM TIMES in an interview Tuesday morning.

Another Lagos resident who declined to have his name in print lamented the impact of the blackout on households and business operations in parts of the country.
