Nigeria : Oil exploration’ll violate UNEP report, MOSOP warns

United States of America chapter of the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) has expressed concern that the plan by the Federal Government to resume oil exploration with palliatives will violate the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Report.

A statement signed by its President, Elder DineBari A. Kpuinen, said: “So far, the government spent $360 million on the cleanup of Ogoni with nothing to show, while the oil firm had spent $71 billion on the project and compensation for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico over 10 years ago.”

They called for total revalidation of the UNEP Report because of the black soot rain that causes internal bleedin,g which was not envisaged in the original study and report by the United Nations, stressing, “Oil production in the area is unacceptable.”
