Regarding the Abuja tremors. a massive 7.8 earthquake was recorded in Fiji (and several other locations on the pacific rim of fire). When an earthquake happens, echoes of the quake can cause tremors to occur in a location at the opposite end of the globe.
I have informed the FCT Minister and Perm Sec. on the scaring earth movement in some parts of Abuja at 6:11am. I felt earth tremors in my home in maitama too. Measures are been taken to address the problem. I will keep the FCT administration on their toes on this.
News of tremors in Abuja and fault lines across Nigeria is worrisome. In the midst of our social, political, economic, and religious troubles, we can't handle an ecological disaster. I strongly urge the govt not to leave this issue to prayer and sentiment. Please research and act
Whether what happened in Abuja was a tremor or not the thing is if a bigger thing like an earthquake should happen how ready are we to be able to evacuate people and save a lot of lives it's not about praying to God like we always like doing in this country but by taking steps
Let's face the truth...the reality is that we're getting closer and closer to a 'man made' EARTH QUAKE in some locations in Nigeria. I mean what did we expect?, that all these un controlled indiscriminate sinking of BOREHOLES in Abuja will not have consequences?
I wish to encourage inhabitants of Abuja not to panic following reported cases of tremor experienced in some parts of the city. It will be reassuring to citizens for the relevant authorities to investigate the situation.
The memo by FEMA on the tremors in Abuja seem to be too speculative and shallow. Meanwhile answers lie around in the open web. Answer put together by people who seem to know what they are doing even with matters that concern us.
3 days and I have experienced this house shaking everyday. Those blasting rocks should calm tf down. Can’t be having heart palpitations!! Time to go lock valuables in a hard suitcase. But where will I lock myself #abujatremors
The blanket press statement from the government is not enough to explain these Abuja Tremors. Thorough investigation is needed. We shouldn't be okay with just "maybes". We should be informed with more certainty. #AbujaTremors
Its obvious that we depend on Archean geoscientific data, which was postulated by pioneers in modern Geoscience even till now, forgetting that the earth is dynamic with lots of unseen processing in surface and sub-surface .#abujatremors#Nigeria#USGS#EarthTremor#AbujaTremor
You can't be rock blasting everyday (sometimes night quarrying) like economic riffraffs and expect the earth not to give in. Full scale regulation needed but we know how bribes water down needed regulations in these parts. #AbujaTremors
