Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central senatorial district has advised the Federal Government to be careful investing in nuclear power.
He said this on Tuesday while flagging-off distribution of Solar Power energy and transformers to hundred communities within the Kaduna Central Senatorial zone.
He stressed that Nigeria as a country is not ready for nuclear power, after revealing that N2 billion has been allocated for the construction of nuclear station in the 2016 budget.
“Nuclear power station is not like what happens, when militants break pipelines and the next day it is repaired.”
“If we are to install nuclear station, we should know that it comes with a lot of consequences. Nuclear station is not NNPC depot or pipeline, where you can damage it and fix it immediately and continue operations.”
“We have seen the danger of nuclear power station in Japan and Russia, so, we must be very careful.”
