power outage and no light in lagos

Why is there no light in Lagos today? Labour unions begin nationwide strike

Lagos residents have been asking questions since most of the city has been without power and light today. The Power Outage has sparked lots of reactions.

The reason why there is no light in Lagos is because the Labour Union has shut down National Grid.

TCN in a statement states that the national grid shutdown occurred at about 2.19 am Monday, 3rd June 2024.

The shutdown started from the Benin transmission operator to other substations in Ganmo, Benin, Ayede, Olorunsogo, Akangba and Osogbo.

TCN also says power generating units from different generating stations were forced to shut down some units of their generating plants.

At about 3.23 am Monday, however, TCN says it has commenced grid recovery, using the Shiroro Substation to attempt to feed the transmission lines supplying bulk electricity to the Katampe Transmission Substation.

TCN assures that it will sustain efforts in recovering and stabilizing the grid to ensure the restoration of normal bulk transmission of electricity to distribution load centres nationwide.
