FG to engage foreign firm to convert waste from Ogoni Clean up to electricity

John Diidi

A member of the HYPREP board in charge of the remediation project, Mike Emo, has said the Federal Government is planning to engage a foreign firm that will convert waste from the soon-to-commence clean up of Ogoni land to electricity.

It will be recalled that the MOVEMENT for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, expressed worry over the continuous delay in the clean-up of their environment, and had called on world leaders and all men of conscience to intervene in the situation.

It’s on this ground that Mike Emo who is also the National Chairman of host communities of Nigeria producing oil and gas, said the clean up was yet to commence because of the issue of the waste and search for a suitable site where it can be dumped for the conversion to electricity and called for calm from the Ogoni’s.
