Nigeria Gets Lights Back After Big Breakdown: BBC Reports

After a blackout on Sunday, most Nigerian cities now have electricity again. The power went out because the main grid broke down, leaving places like the capital, Abuja, without power.

Electricity companies said sorry for the problem. The company in charge of the national power lines fixed the grid, getting things running again.

This was the first big breakdown this year, but it happened a lot last year.

Even though Nigeria is big on oil and gas, it still struggles to make enough electricity. It serves over 200 million people, but the power it makes can be as little as 3500 to 4500 megawatts.

So, even though Nigeria makes a lot of energy, getting it to people can still be tricky. That’s the latest from BBC.
