  • POLLUTION Ravaging Niger DELTA

    “Royal Dutch Shell and the Italian multinational oil giant ENI have admitted to more than 550 oil spills in the Niger Delta last year, according to an Amnesty International analysis of the companies’ latest figures. By contrast, on average, there were only 10 spills a year across the whole of Europe between 1971 and 2011…..

    Shell reported 204 Niger Delta spills in 2014 while ENI, which operates in a smaller area, reported a staggering 349 spills.

    “These figures are seriously alarming. ENI has clearly lost control over its operations in the Niger Delta. And despite all its promises, Shell has made no progress on tackling oil spills,” said Audrey Gaughran, Amnesty International’s Global Issues Director…In any other country, this would be a national emergency. In Nigeria it appears to be standard operating procedure for the oil industry. The human cost is horrific – people living with pollution every day of their lives.”

    Why is the Federal Govt not withdrawing from the ECA to clean up the pollution in all of Niger delta communities? Haba! This shows that this Govt is wicked and does not really care about the region that owns the wealth and their welfare. When militants start blowing up oil installations then the govt will begin to blame the elders and be sending fighter jets and army to the region. Whereas all they need to do is to hands off the resources of a people and let them take charge and control of their resources. Hpw can u use resources from one region to fight a terrorist organization invented by another region? Anyway, I blame the Governors and Legislators from the Niger Delta and East. They are useless and spineless cowards. Were it Northern states that have resources as you do, I am sure the Niger Delta and Eastern Nigeria will never benefit in anyway.
