Abuja Tremor : Nigerian Scientists Should Wake Up-PRO AWDROP

The Federal Government of Nigeria has been called upon to get to the root of the recent tremor in the Federal Capital Territory.

This call was made by the Public Relations Officer(PRO) of the Association of Water  Drilling Rig Owners and Practitoners(AWDROP)Mr. Richard Ajayi in a chat with People.

''If our Scientists say there is nothing to worry about, government does not have to rely solely on their advice, is there any measure in place to forestall a disaster ?

It is high time our Scientists wake up to their responsibilities, when earhtquake eventually occurs what will they say is the cause ?

Government should expedite action on the water resources bill in the National Assembly, this will enable the Nigeria Integrated Water Resources Management Commission to come into being to regulate indiscriminate drlling. A similar thing happened in Shaki, Oyo sate, not long ago. Government should be proactive and do the needful'', Mr. Ajayi warned.

The Federal Government recently deported some expatriates, who entered the country with questionable immigration papers.
