Federal Government Gives Reasons For Delay In Ogoni Cleanup (Must Read!!)

The Federal Government, yesterday, gave reasons for the
delay in the commencement of Ogoni clean-up exercise,
saying it was to build a solid foundation for the project.
It will be recalled that in June, Vice-President Yemi
Osinbajo, launched the “Clean-Up of Ogoniland” at Bodo,
Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State.
But since flag-off the project experienced hiccups.
However, Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed, said
every arrangement concerning the project has now been
perfected, including the issue of funding.
This came as the Director General of the National Oil Spill
Detection and Response Agency, NOSDRA, Sir Peter Idabor,
called for review of the law that set up the agency with a
view to strengthening it to achieve its mandates.
Mohammed, who spoke at the 10th Anniversary of
NOSDRA, in Abuja, said:
The minister maintained that it was important for militants
to stop further oil spillage by putting a halt to bombing of
oil facilities to assist the exercise.

“Talking about Ogoni spill, all resources
have been made available and the money
has been released. But if you do not have
structure in place the money will go into the
ground and people will not feel the impact.
It is important for us to put together
structure and make sure that we have a
solid foundation. Who is in the office, who
is the budget manager and how are they
recruiting? All of these were not taken care
of in the past. But this time, we believe that
by the time we leave, people will see result.
It will be a continuing process and in the
next few months people will be seeing some
of the issues that they had not seen.”

“In Nigeria, there is a growing level of oil
spill incidents caused majorly by illegal
bunkering, artificial refining, oil theft and
armed militancy. These activities occur
mostly in facilities located on land and
swamp areas. However, some incidents do
occur offshore, and with the increased
interest of operators to pursue exploration
and production in the deep offshore, there
is the need to step up the level of
preparedness to effectively respond to
challenges that may be presented by oil
spills in the marine environment.
“The devastating impacts of oil spills on the
environment, health and livelihoods of our
rural and urban communities have led to
land degradation, loss of lives, destruction
of habitats, loss of biodiversity, incidence of
diseases, poor sanitation as well as the
depletion of national revenue base.
“The need to prevent and rapidly respond to
oil spill incidents whenever they occur can
therefore not be overemphasized. To this
end, the Federal Government is committed
to dialoguing with state governments,
opinion and youth leaders in the Niger Delta
region to find a lasting solution to these
incessant attacks which deplete our
national revenue base and degrade the
