UNEP Report:MOSOP Assures FG of Co-Operation In Ogoni Land Clean UP

ogoni spillThe Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP),  Sunday expressed its happiness  over the renewed commitment of the federal government to speedily commence the implementation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report on Ogoniland.

In a statement signed by the publicity secretary of  MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke, the organisation said that it was “particularly delighted at the new spirit of cooperation and commitment to results shown by the Honorable Minister for Environment, Mrs. Amina Mohammed during her visit to Ogoniland.”

The Body also stated that it “wished to convey to the Federal Government the unreserved pledge of the Ogoni people to cooperate with all stakeholders and relevant agencies that will be involved in the project implementation.”

While acknowledging the delay in the  implementation of the UNEP report, MOSOP affirmed that the years of neglect  has “had some damaging consequences on the health of our people including an increased mortality rate resulting from organ failures.” And that it believed some of  “these negative experiences could have been averted had the government given the desired attention to the report when it was released in August 2011”.

The organisation further added that it will be counting on the assurance given by the Honorable Minister for Environment that the implementation of the report will be launched by the present government within weeks.
