NiMet Promises Credible and Reliable services in 2021
The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has promised and expressed its level of preparedness to continue rendering credible and reliable services to all relevant sectors in the New Year.
The Director of Public Affairs in the Ministry of Aviation, Mr James Odaudu, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, quoted NiMet`s Director- General, Prof. Sani Mashi, as saying this during a chat with the media team of the Ministry.
Mashi disclosed that the agency was ready to advance its services especially to those that relied on its annual predictions as a guide for their own business activities that the 2021 Seasonal Climate Prediction on Feb. 2, which will be done by the Minister of Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, will remain the most reliable source of weather and climate information in the country.
He said, “As beneficiaries of the Seasonal Climate Prediction (SCP) by the Nigerian Metrological Agency (NiMet) look forward to this year’s event, the organisation is now better placed than before to deliver on its mandates and responsibilities.
“The level of attention given to the agency by the Federal Government has been such that has propelled it to record massive achievements. Even at a time that other sectors of the economy have suffered as a result of dwindling resources occasioned by the global economic recession and the coronavirus pandemic,“
The director- general said that physical attendance at the event would be strictly by invitation in other to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country but assured that all the resources related to the SCP would be made available online for easy access.
He explained that “NiMet provides weather services and issues weather reports to contribute to safety improvement and efficiency of air navigation for the aviation. It also provides Oceanographic information for marine users both at sea and along the coast thereby making the decision-making process during weather-sensitive operations more efficient.
He said the agency provides basic information and issues early warning on flood, drought, crop-pests and diseases within the Agricultural Sector.
