Nigeria Does Not Have Capacity for Nuclear Power Plants Yet – FG

The Managing Director of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, Engineer Usman Gur Mohammed, has said that Nigeria does not have the capacity to build a nuclear power plant for now.

Chairman/Chief Executive, Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission (NAEC), Professor Simon Mallam, had, in May this year, disclosed that the country’s first nuclear power plant, with the capacity to generate about 1,200 megawatts of electricity, would be ready for commercial purposes by mid-2020.

However, at an interactive session with journalists in Abuja, Mohammed said that there was no concrete plan to start building of the plant in Nigeria, adding that its construction required a lot of research.
