Asked further if the country could also make nuclear and wind energy possible, Amobi who assumed the office of MD/CEO of NBET in August, said it was also a mirage. “We cannot run nuclear in Nigeria, and the question of wind energy, forget it. It’s just a story. We cannot run all that in Nigeria. It’s just a wish list,” she said.
