Cleanup of Ogoni, other polluted areas shouldn’t last for eternity, ex-minister cautions

Fri Nov 22nd, 2019 - Anambra

Former Minster of Environment, Mrs. Hadiza Mailafia, has said the cleaning up of Ogoniland in Rivers State, Nanka in Anambra and other polluted places should not continue for eternity.

She made the remarks at the 13th meeting of the National Council of Environment (NCE) in Kaduna.

The Guardian recalled that the cleanup of Ogoniland has been lingering due to negligence from the Federal Government and almost eight years after the receipt of the technical report prepared by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) at the instance of the Federal Government.
