Nigeria to Go Nuclear: Talk is Cheap!Nigeria has been fantasizing about nuclear energy since 1976 when the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission (NAEC) was first inaugurated. President Obasanjo's inauguration of the board of the commission brought it back to live from its three decade slumber.
My usual inclination to proceed and continue my rant on the issue but I won't because there is every indication that Nigeria is full of hot air. And this nuclear energy talk is one instance.
Of the issues needing attention, nuclear energy should be the last; given the unique nature of this business, I wonder, just as Nkem at African Shirts: if Nigeria can not get rid of its domestic waste, how will it manage nuclear?
