Photos: ERA/FoEN seeks implementation of Ogoniland UNEP report

At a day-long stakeholders’ workshop held on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 in Abuja, the Environmental Rights Action/Friends of the Earth Nigeria (FoEN) formally demanded that the Federal Government should urgently commence the implementation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report on Ogoniland in the Niger Delta, which has suffered decades of land, air and sea degradation as a result of pollution from oil exploration. The UNEP report is four years old.

The event featured dignitaries such as Kingsley Chido (MOSOP representative in the National Assembly), Warder Ayibakuro (woman leader), Colin Roche (FoE Europe), Wale Okediran, Prof. M. T. Okorodudu-Fubara (of the Obafemi Awolowo University), Dr Tunde Akani (of the Lagos State University), Prof. Fidelis Allen and Yusuf Leke Zambuk.
