The Persistent power outage in the country due to faults has become alarming to the government and the body responsible for electricity generation in the country. It also creates a major problem for electricity consumers in Nigeria, there must be an improvement in the reliability of the transmission system in Nigeria. This research work is predominantly concerned with the analysis of outages on 330kV and 132kV transmission system, and system disturbances on generation and transmission system for five (5) years. The result shows that the forced outages are the most occurred outages on the 330 kV line, while on 132 kV line, emergency outages have the highest number of outages in 2014 but decreases rapidly over the years, similarly, twenty-seven (27) major system disturbances occurred in 2016 with 31% against ten (10) with 11% disturbances in 2015, while 2014 and 2018 with the same number of system disturbances of thirteen (13) with 15%, it is apparent that more disturbances occur on the transmission system, and there should be a proper protection scheme to maintain stable grid network. Consequently, Mini-grid and off-grid solutions will prominently address the issue of power supply shortage and instability in Nigeria. Keywords: outage, transmission, generation, disturbances, grid.
