As a trained Physicist, I will say a very big NO

I doubt you knew they was a presence of highly enriched uranium for some years in Nigeria. It was hidden from uninformed people like you who will talk trash of something you know nothing of

Mr efiko.

What is the trash in there?

You think say you sabi book abi. Come over

We are talking about how dangerous nuclear energy could be in country like ours you are saying I know nothing about.

One problem with today's scientists is that they think deeply and not clearly- Nikola Tesla
If Nigerians want to compete with the rest of the world in technology, why not develop carbon neutral technologies like carbon sinking or lead the field of nuclear fusion research, computer technology, biological nuclear magnetic resonance or other biological sample analysis and medical research etc
Most countries that rely heavily on nuclear power are usually one's with limited access to cheap gas,oil and coal maybe have plans for nuclear weapons.
A new term should be created for countries that borrowed technologies they're not fully in control of and can not manage( technological puppet), they should think, what if they have disagreement with the master country, what if they decides to leave (like nigerian iron and steel), what if there is cyber attack on the nuclear facility, do we have advanced computer technology to protect it.
Instead of them to look into coal,gas, solar and wind,hydro and geothermal technology transfer first.

Lol. Bros, I no get strength again.

However, Nuclear Energy is the cleanest energy after solar. It possesses no danger to anyone except your mindset
Re: Nigerian Senate Makes Case For Nuclear Energy by Supersymetry: 9:55pm On Dec 12, 2019
Most people that don't like solar technology don't know about the resent development in the field like the introduction of solution processed perovskites, quantum dot and nanowire solar cells etc

I can confidently say this is never Gonna happen grin If it would it shouldn't be in the raghead region.

Ah Chairman, there is every harm in TRIAL. A nuclear process, once started, cannot be stopped. It's irreversible. You cannot have any small mistakes. Have u heard of the Chernobyl and other disasters? Germany that is winding down their nuclear stations cannot quench the nuclear process. They are just burying it under thick concrete and salt domes. I am truly afraid for Nigeria. Let senate look at solar and wind. Those are also safe and cleaner sources.

I am very sure you enjoy constant blackout in Nigeria. You like to blame government and still don't want solutions.

Just mention any country where Solar is their major source of power except Morocco?

Some of you just come to nairaland to talk nonsense

Solar technology though the cleanest is not even an option for Nigeria except we don't want to ever experience constant power.


People shouting nuclear disaster probably don't know what a power plant or nuclear energy is

Chai, we will remain the worst country in Nigeria with the kind of people with same mindset.

For your information, the only thing that can cause an accident in a Nuclear power plant as built before and today is natural disaster. Aside natural disaster, nuclear power plant does not pose any risk to anyone.


Waste management is something you should be talking about

nuclear power is the safest, what causes the disaster are human errors trying to experiment, other forms of power produces green house gases which in turn destroys the ozone layer and the sun rays directly hits us giving us cancer, they even cause acid rains which is detrimental to our health.
Also the nuclear power is easier to operate than other forms of power.
It also gives a stable and predictable power supply than the rest. Hydro electricity is not much, wind and sun can't even boast of 24hrs power supply.
Nuclear is so efficient and important that it alone accounts for 30% of the world power supply.
It produces few wastes than the rest.
This is what a growing population like Nigeria needs
Protesting against it is like protesting that we shouldn't av air ports because plane crash can kill 100 persons even if they tell you it is the safest means of transportation.
Face ur fear bro, we are going nuclear.
Merry Xmas in advance
There you go, the human error, how can we guarantee this in a country still battling with basic human problems. High precision is needed to keep the reactors at bay in order to prevent any form of nuclear accident. In case where such happens, do we have the neccessary plan on ground to minimize damage, don't forget it happened even in countries with the best nuclear scientists and human resources. This is more practical than you think bro, this is not about theory, our country is not ready for this. Green house effect is still learning where a nuclear accident occurs.

Thank U well said, in the Uk today Coal accounts for more than half of its power generation still!

If you realy take time to research it you will see there are many avenues where we can have problem/

There is no guarantee that accident will occur, but other forms of power destroys the ecosystem and shorten the earth lifespan whether there is accident or not.
The earth has some few million years left and green house gases reduces the age.
But you can be 80-95% sure that nothing will happen using nuclear power, its just the 10% error that makes things go out of control.
If we rely on wind, hydro, solar etc, we will never have enough power to boost the economy.
If we boost the economy, we can have a way of tackling the disaster that nuclear power could cause, and its not likely that such disaster will happen in the next 50-100years, so why the fear
Re: Nigerian Senate Makes Case For Nuclear Energy by Adelk: 8:48am On Dec 13, 2019
Shouuu......it's good idea to go for nuclear power but let no forget the diverse advert effect if not properly managed. The radiation dt it would emit leads to cancer, genetic/germline mutations.....(mutated children) with unwanted physical xters and it could be passed on and on to generations

Only if Nigeria can manage it properly....it would give us all the stable electricity need

Re: Nigerian Senate Makes Case For Nuclear Energy by Davidzy23(m): 9:22am On Dec 13, 2019
Why is nobody saying anything about Solar energy??

isn't it better and suited for our region than nuclear energy which deals more with radiation??

Do we have that maintenance mentality?

last last all na scam....
Re: Nigerian Senate Makes Case For Nuclear Energy by Giftedtu: 9:30am On Dec 13, 2019
I don't understand much about this nuclea thing, but i hope it is not that one that they say is capable of wipping out an entire state, if it is that one, we don't need it in Akwa ibom.

Without talking nonsense, you do realise that those countries you are looking up to do not have an abundance of sunshine like Morocco does. Hence you find them investing in wind farms. Besides, we have other power sources so we are looking at an energy mix.

I like reading comments from people who are objective and not just blindly pro-FG as some would like to think.

Objective critical thinking is very rare in Nigerians. Only few with quality education (usually) have those skills.
True

It seems like you extremely jealous of other countries.
Why should Nigeria compete with them..
You may not be able to travel out of Nigeria in your life time... Double edge sword mouth
