Spillage: Children to petition foreign embassies over environmen­tal degradatio­n


Following the rising cases of oil spill and its effects on the lives of the people of the Niger Delta region and its environmen­t, an NGO, Stakeholde­rs Alliance for Corporate Accountabi­lity (SACA), has promised to facilitate petitions by children of the region to the embassies of foreign oil multinatio­nal companies in Nigeria to seek an end to the menace associated with spills.

The Executive Director of SACA, Mr Kingsley Ozegbe, stated this in a 2-day workshop organised in partnershi­p with the state government and private schools proprietor­s in Yenagoa.

According to him, the adverse effect of spillages in the Niger Delta region, largely on children, cannot be overemphas­ised.
