The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has attributed the current Nigeria’s power blackout to ‘multiple trippings’.

In a message obtained by Vanguard, General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Ndidi Mbah, stated: “The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) regrets to inform electricity consumers nationwide that at 11:25 am today, the nation’s electricity grid experienced multiple trippings, which led to the collapse of the system.
