Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

The fed­eral govern­ment has called for col­lab­o­ra­tion among all cen­tres un­der the Na­tional Space Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Agency (NASRDA).

The Min­is­ter of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, Dr Og­bon­naya Onu, who was on a work­ing visit to the Na­tional Cen­ter for Re­mote Sens­ing (NCRS) in Jos, said such syn­ergy, if ex­tended to other min­istries and agen­cies, could help pre­vent flood­ing, degra­da­tion, de­ser­ti­fi­ca­tion and other dis­as­ters.

He rec­om­mended to the cen­tre to write let­ters to var­i­ous min­istries and agen­cies in­form­ing them of the var­i­ous ser­vices it could of­fer due to the use of its Ground Re­ceiv­ing Sta­tion satel­lite.
