NIMET inaugurates weather station in Nasarawa state University Keffi



The Nigerian Meteorological Agency has inaugurated a weather station at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, to enhance learning and research. The event took place shortly after the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the agency and the university.
