“It was around 9.40 pm and we started the restoration programme till about 1 am when we were above 1,000 megawatts and there was a swing in the power system again and we lost some generation again and currently we are in the process of restoring,” he added.

Mr. Amuna however indicated that “almost 50% of the power across the country has been restored” adding that GRIDCo is still working to restore power to the nation.

The lights went off around 9 pm.
