Nigerians lament collapse of national grid on social media



Nigerians in various parts of the country face another period of blackout as the national grid suffers another system failure. The collapse occurred around 11 a.m. on Wednesday, according to an earlier report by The PUNCH, and was confirmed by two of the country's electricity distribution companies: Kaduna Electric via Twitter and Eko Electricity Distribution Company Plc via separate messages to customers. The grid, which is managed by the government-owned Transmission Company of Nigeria, has experienced several system failures over the years due to a lack of spinning reserve: a generation capacity capable of responding within 10 minutes to compensate for outages in generation or transmission Nigerians have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the frequent occurrence of system failure and resulting blackout. On Twitter, @HnanenD stated, "Having and operating a spinning reserve should be the most basic thing to achieve in Nigeria's complex power sector." “It would have been preferable if we had only had poor transmission capacity to deal w seeith, but this clearly indicates far more trouble than anticipated,” he added.
