About the Chairman

WHO we are

The Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission (NAEC), created by Act 46 of 1976 (as amended by Cap N91 LFN, 2004), is the national focal agency charged with the responsibility for the promotion of the development of atomic energy and for all matters relating to the peaceful use of atomic energy.

NAEC was, however, activated and became fully operational in July, 2006 under the aegis of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, by the appointment of its pioneer Director-General/Chief Executive Officer.
