Ghanaian Government has announced plans to introduce nuclear power into the country’s energy mix and will take between 10 to 15 years for the realization of the vision to ensure affordable energy for industrial development.

A team has been constituted to embark on a reconnaissance trip for a preliminary assessment and collection of site data for the Nuclear Power Program, while mass sensitization activities are being carried out to promote public acceptability of the technology and to explain the benefits Ghana stands to gain from a Nuclear Power Plant

A nine-member board, known as ‘Nuclear Power Ghana’ has been constituted by the government to oversee the full implementation of the program, which will see the nation rubbing shoulders with nuclear power nations like Iran, Iraq, Russia and South Korea.

The present government of the country has promised to develop the country in every endeavor and urged the successive government to maintain sustainable development in the country.
