Atomic Energy Commission: Senate Conducts Public Hearing To Amend Act

by Silverbird News24

The Senate Committee on Science and Technology has conducted a public hearing on the obsolete Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission Act which came into existence 46 years ago.

The bill which was sponsored by Senator Orkey Jev was dissected by stakeholders who attended the public hearing, saying there is a need to amend the existing act to redefine the responsibilities of regulators from operators.

Earlier in her opening speech, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Science and Technology Senator Uche Lilian Ekwunife, emphasised the need to amend the bill, stressing that the provisions of the act have grossly become inadequate for energy activities in Nigeria.
