Overview of Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET)
Before I continue with recruitment processes, I would like to give you a brief overview of NIMET. Meteorological Services started in Nigeria in 1892. Their operation then was under the premises of the Public Works Department (PWD), Lagos where the oldest rainfall station was established. In 1937, it then became one part of the services of the British West African Meteorological Services of the then Gold Coast, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Gambia.
In 1949, the agency gained it independence, becoming an agency on its own and one of the seven (7) colonial department structure. With the establishment of the Ministries in the form of government in 1952, Meteorological services affected all areas of the Nigerian economy. The movement is hence shown below:
- 1952 – 1953 Ministry of Communication;
- 1953 – 1955 Ministry of Transport;
- 1955 – 1960 Ministry of Communication and Aviation;
- 1960 – 1965 Ministry of Natural Resources and Research (Renamed to Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources);
- 1975 – 1983 ministry of Civil Aviation;
- 1983 – December 1987 Ministry of Transport;
- December 1987 till date – ministry of Aviation.
