Nigeria To Embark On Building Nuclear Plants

The Federal Government to embark on building of nuclear plants in the country. This was confirmed by the Minister of Science and Technology, Mr Ogbonnaya Onu said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday in Abuja.

Mr. Onu said that nuclear energy would bridge the energy gap needed to
enhance agriculture, advance health, improve education and boost manufacturing in the country.

He said that the Federal Government had started making arrangement with the Russian State Nuclear Corporation, Rosatom, to actualise its dream of application of nuclear energy.

According to the minister, Rosatom will prepare the agreement on the construction of a nuclear power plant in the country.

He said that the reason the country chose the Russian state nuclear corporation was because of its essential experience in nuclear technology.

Onu said that the country would in turn prepare an agreement on the development of the project which would determine further steps on the construction of the nuclear power plant.

“Nuclear power is considered a prominent alternative and a more environmentally beneficial solution since it emits far less greenhouse gases during electricity generation than coal or other traditional power plants.

He said that the envisaged project would be a success because the plant would be fed from the uranium deposit in the country.

“It is a manageable source of generating electricity and has large power-generating capacity that can meet industrial and city needs.

“It is not like the low-power technologies such as solar that might meet only local, residential or office needs but cannot generate power for heavy manufacturing,’’ he said.
