National Grid Hasn’t Collapsed In 2 Months— Power Minister

Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu has announced that issues surrounding the recurring collapse of the National grid are being resolved.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Minister while speaking at the ongoing Ministerial Sectorial Update on Friday said that the grid has remained stable for the past two months due to their diligent efforts.

The federal government organized the event to offer the Ministers the opportunity to present their scorecards to the public.

Adelabu said, “You can see that for the past two months now the power grid has not collapsed because we’re also on top of it and we’re trying our best to ensure that we minimise the occurrence of this.”

“But the permanent solution to grid collapse is to have automated control of the frequency on the grid and the voltage. There’s an application used for that, called Security Control and Data Acquisition, SCADA.”

“We’ve been trying this thing for the last 10 to 12 years. But just last week we had intervention from the World Bank.”

“They gave us 24 months to conclude the implementation of SCADA and I believe once the World Bank is involved, we’re going to achieve that.”

“We now use a locally developed Internet of Things whereby you’re only able to see a portion of the generation and transmission locations while others are not on the network but with SCADA, 100 percent of the locations are going to be on the network.”
