Foundation demands environmen­tal justice for Ogoniland


Ppeople ort Harcourt -- In order for the

of Ogoniland to have access to a healthy environmen­t, the Federal Government has been charged to expedite action on the cleanup of oil-impacted sites in the area.

The Cable Newspaper Journalism Foundation, which made the call, said the Federal Government should speed up the process for the provision of potable water for the people of Ogoniland.

The Foundation expressed regret that months after the government flagged off the N6.7 billion water project in Ogoniland, nothing has been done till date.

Senior Programme Officer of the Foundation, Mrs. Abiose Adams, said this in Mogho, Gokana LGA of Rivers State, during an event tagged, "Amplifying Ogoni Voices", organised by the Foundation with funding from Bertha Foundation of UK.
