Ogoni cleanup: NASS tasked on oversight function

The Environmental Rights Action/Friends of the Earth Nigeria (ERA/FoEN) has called on the National Assembly to increase its oversight function in the cleanup process in Ogoni land before it collapses due to politicking and corruption.

ERA/FoEN Executive Director, Dr Godwin Uyi Ojo, made the call in a chat with journalists in Benin.

He said the fate of the Ogoni people and other areas in the Niger Delta was in the balance in the decade of ecosystem restoration as declared by the United Nations.

Dr Ojo said, “Shell and the other multinational companies should pay to enable independent and competent experts to undertake this multi-disciplinary scientific and community building exercise in consonance with global practices.”
