The National Grid on Wednesday suffered another system collapse resulting in a blackout in many parts of the country.

While some collapses were not made public because they lasted for a short period, many others were made public and lasted days in some cases.

Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) confirmed the latest development in a statement on Wednesday.
