The record was transmitted through the national grid at a frequency of 50.10Hz at 9:15pm, August 18, 2020.

The General Manager, Public Affairs, Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Ndidi Mbah, confirmed this in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.

Explaining the development, she said, “The gradual but steady improvement in electricity delivery in the nation’s power sector is attributable to the keen interest of the current administration in piloting programmes and projects geared towards growing the power sector as well as the collective effort of all players in the value chain.
