The TCN made the confirmation in a statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, obtained by newsmen in Lagos.

According to her, while the restoration of the grid and power gradually progress to other parts of the country, the cause of the voltage collapse that precipitated this failure is equally being investigated.

“TCN appeals for patience as it works assiduously to ensure full restoration of the grid and consequently power supply to the remaining parts of the country,” she added.
