N60bn revenue shortfall hampers electricity distribution- NERC

Nigerians have on Monday taken to social media to lament and make fun of the latest blackout caused by the collapsed national grid.

Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that the national electricity grid on Monday morning collapsed yet again, throwing several cities including the federal capital Abuja, and parts of Lagos State into darkness.

The new national collapse has generated more controversies especially as the federal government had recently activated a partial Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

The PPA agreement was made with generation companies for the supply of 5,505 Megawatts of electricity for peak generation and a base load of 4,893MW.
