Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The Nige­rian Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Agency (NiMet) has signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with Trans-African Hy­dro-Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Ob­ser­va­tory (TAHMO) in The Nether­lands, to de­velop a net­work of Au­to­matic Weather Sta­tions (AWS) across the coun­try.

NiMet’s Direc­torGen­eral, Pro­fes­sor Sani Mashi, said this in a state­ment by Mrs Tessy Ushie, the agency’s As­sis­tant Gen­eral Man­ager yes­ter­day in Abuja.

Mashi said the MoU was in fur­ther­ance of the agency’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to pro­vide ef­fi­cient and re­li­able me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal in­for­ma­tion to var­i­ous sec­tors of the econ­omy.

He said the col­lab­o­ra­tion, which would be for five years in the first in­stance, was also aimed at ad­vanc­ing TAHMO’s vi­sion to im­prove sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa’s ca­pac­ity for hy­dro-me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal mon­i­tor­ing. (NAN)
