Nigeria’s electrical grid was privatized about 10 years ago. Power producers are different from power distributors. In Lagos, the chief distributor is the Ikeja Electrical Distribution Company.

No one really understands why we can’t have 24 hour electricity, it is all messed up in a complex web of politics and business, don’t overthink it, just know you can’t have 24 hour electricity while your here.
