Wakadaily gathered that the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, has last week Wednesday confirmed that the grid collapse occurred at about 11:27 am. (EEDC) said, “Dear customers, we regret to inform you of a system collapse on the national grid at precisely 11:27 am today, Wednesday, July 20. We are in talks with the Transmission Company of Nigeria to ascertain the cause of the collapse and a possible restoration timeline.”

Peter Obi took to his official Twitter page on Thursday, to lament on the country’s epileptic power supply, the format Anambra State Governor said it was time for Nigerians to demand what was right from the country’s leaders.

He wrote, “Nigeria’s epileptic electricity supply remains a matter of deep concern. Although South Africa, the second biggest economy on the continent has a population of over 60 million, and generates over 50,000 megawatts.

“Her authorities are currently complaining of an energy crisis; thus compelling President Ramaphosa to declare an emergency situation and an intervention policy permitting private persons or corporations to generate up to 100 megawatts without licenses.

“Nigeria, the African giant with over 200 million people, generates a paltry 4000 megawatts, which is less than 10% of South Africa’s without declaring a power crisis or emergency.

“Nigerians should take a cue from global governance best practices; grasp what people-oriented leadership is all about and raise up for effective change.- PO”
