The federal government says it has commenced investigation into the cause of another national grid collapse.
This statement is coming after Friday’s grid collapse that plunged the nation into darkness.
The Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu, in a statement on Saturday said as investigation into the collapse continues, efforts are at top gear to restore electricity to suffering Nigerians.
The statement said the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), the operator of the national grid, is in the process of restoring supply.
