Dr Stephen Yamoah, the Executive Director of NPG, speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said the yet-to-be-constructed nuclear plant would offer opportunities to enhance the teaching, learning and practicing of STEM from Senior High Schools to the tertiary level.


“In the nuclear industry there are scientists, engineers, physicists, mathematicians, chemists and other science related fields that work together. So that platform will offer that window of opportunity,” he said.Regarding job creation, he said a one gigawatts nuclear power plant could employ between 700 to 900 people.
