Images: Ministers’ New Year day tour of impacted Ogoniland pollution sites

Nigeria’s environment ministers started the New Year on a serious note as it was all work and no rest on Sunday, January 1 2017. While people wined and dined in the spirit of the festive season, the ministers opted to remain on the field.

Minister of Environment (and Deputy UN Secretary General designate), Amina Mohammed, in the company of her assistant, the Minister of State for Environment, Ibrahim Usman Jibril, visited Ogoniland in the Niger Delta region in Rivers State to assess some oil pollution impacted sites, in an apparent readiness for the commencement of the much expected clean-up exercise of the environmentally degraded region.
