Nigeria, Russia In Talks To Build Nuclear Power Plant

Nigeria is in talks with Russia’s state-owned Rosatom to build nuclear power plants in the country, according to Channels.

A spokesman for Rosatom was quoted as saying: “we have an intergovernmental agreement with Nigeria, but not concrete decisions have been made.”

One nuclear power plant costs between $5 billion to $8 billion, a source at the company said.

Chief Executive of the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission, Franklin Erepamo Osaisai, said on their website that Nigeria has no experience in developing and operating nuclear power plants but has a gamma facility and small reactors producing around 30 kilowatts for research, adding that nuclear power will guarantee long-term energy supply.
