The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Ita Enang, in an interview in Uyo, told the people of Oku Iboku not to resort to violence in opposing the siting of the plant in their community, saying the Federal Government would not do anything to the detriment of the people.

He said the result of the environmental impact assessment of the project would determine if the federal government would go ahead to establish the plant in the area.

His words:
“I had engaged in a meeting with the former Director-General of the Nuclear Regulatory Agency in my house on the safety of this project, and I had told him that there are other alternative sources of energy that are safer. We did not complete the discussion until his tenure expired and he left, and another person was appointed."

“Where we are now is where they are doing an environmental impact analysis and the discussion we had with the former Director-General was that they have to do an environmental impact analysis and a lot of people in the whole of that area will have to be evacuated in case of an accident. “And I drew his attention to Chernobyl and the number of nuclear accidents we were having in the world at that time, and I also drew his attention to the fact that around Chile, nuclear plants accident had sunk almost a whole clan.

“We have to find out what the people really want and the effects of it and if there is no other alternative to doing it. “People should be calm and just make their submissions. There shouldn’t be any violence about it.

The Federal Government will take a decision based on the report of the assessment.”

I strongly advise against it, don’t let the FGN do that because Nigeria lack the capability to maintain nuclear plant.

While I do not necessarily support or oppose any administration, I kind of agree with the plan to site the plant there or anywhere else in the south, west or east. For one, the other regions are relatively safer than the North now. With the volatility of the North, it is not prudent/safe to build a nuclear facility there. I pray that peace reign in the North as it is a beautiful place and most of the people are wonderful people too.

On the other hand, if FG planned to build it in the North, would still not be said that 'FG IS BUILDING A NUCLEAR PLANT IN THE NORTH TO KILL EASTERN PART OF NIGERIA'.
If rejected, they will still build it in the North. But no complain thereafter.
