President Yar'Adua calls for nuclear power-generated electricity.

President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua has observed that Nigeria needs to develop the capacity for the generation of electricity through nuclear power.


He spoke on July 23 at the State House, Abuja while receiving briefs from the National Atomic Energy Commission.

"We need to develop the capacity to utilise nuclear power for power generation. Who knows, nuclear power may be the only source of energy in the future, and we must think of the future", the President stated.

Responding to proposals for further work by the Commission, President Yar'Adua directed the Ministry of Science and Technology to align proposals of the National Programme for the Deployment of Nuclear Power for Generation of Electricity with the overall national policy on power.

"We have to align your work with the National Power Policy, taking cognisance of other sources of energy generation - oil, gas, hydro, wind and solar", he added.

President Yar'Adua also directed the Ministry to look at the regulatory framework, especially on options of funding, considering the huge financial requirement.

The briefing was done by the Director-General, Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission, Dr. Osaisai.

President Yar'Adua, have you considered what you're going to do with the huge radioactive nuclear waste that is inevitably going to be generated from the use of Nuclear Power?

Do your homework sir before touting nuclear power as a source of energy for Nigeria.

I propose Solar Energy as the best source of energy for Nigeria due to it's cleanliness, and environmental friendliness.
