Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has said that the Ogoni clean-up exercise which the Federal Government launched in 2016, is a means of scoring political points.
The Rivers state Governor also said that the people of Ogoni have been impoverished as a result of the pollution of their land and water.
According to reports, Wike said “The Federal Government is not serious about the clean up of Ogoniland. We are tired of telling our people that the project will start next year.
“Let it not be a political project. Look at the North East, a commission was established and $1Billion released.”
