Nigeria’s national power grid collapsed on Sunday, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said in a statement.

Power outages in Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa, are common, but a system breakdown is uncommon.

TCN announced that it will conduct investigations to determine what caused the « multiple trip » once the network is fully restored.

The country’s power grid, along with the resulting precarious energy supply, is a key issue that is hindering the growth of the continent’s largest economy.

Nigeria recently implemented its first increase in electricity tariffs at state-controlled prices since 2015. This doubled prices for some consumers, but the government and industry said there was a need to allow distributors to recoup the costs and pay producer companies.
