The Federal Government has informed Nigerians that it has restored the collapsed national grid.
Recall that the grid collapsed on Tuesday. The announcement of the restoration was made by the Minister of Power, Abubakar Aliyu while speaking to State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo. “We have recovered the grid now,” Aliyu said. “The grid is back and we are trying to get more megawatts to push on the grid. We have set up small committees all geared towards getting more megawatts to put on the grid. Basically, the problem is around gas. You need to have gas contract between generating companies and gas suppliers- some are in form contracts, some are not. We are looking into this and have proffered some solutions in some few days to mature.” The collapse of the grid forced many businesses and homes into darkness.
