Kaduna Explosion: Prof. Mallam’s Death a Setback for Nigeria’s Quest for Energy Sufficiency— Northern Governors Forum  


The Northern Governors Forum has described the death of the Chairman, Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission, Professor Simon Mallam, as a huge loss to the Northern region and Nigeria at large. 

Prof. Mallam, his son and three others died in a gas explosion in Kaduna on Saturday. 

The forum, in a condolence message signed by the Director of Press & Public Affairs to the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, who also doubles as the chairman of the forum, described the incident as “extremely unfortunate and painful.”

The governor further described the death of Mallam as a “setback” to Nigeria’s quest for energy sufficiency “given his vast knowledge and experience which he has been deploying as the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission.”

“This is a huge loss to the entire people of the Northern Region the immediate family of the deceased and Nigeria at large as we have lost one of our brightest minds who has contributed enormously to the development of our people.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased and pray God to grant their souls eternal rest as well as give the family the strength to be comforted,” Lalong was quoted as saying. 

“The Northern Governors Forum therefore called for stringent supervision of gas handling in Nigeria so as to tackle the incessant cases of accidents that have become a source of concern,” the statement stated.
