Abuja - The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has slammed the delays in the implementation of the Ogoniland cleanup saying it was exacerbating health problems.
MOSOP spokesperson, Fegalo Nsuke, said under current conditions living in the region was a “nightmare” for communities.
“The health crises in Ogoniland underscore the need to immediately commence the process to clean Ogoniland,” Nsuke said.
He said delays in appointing a project manager and attempts by politicians to jettison competence and experience in favour of political party considerations could not be accepted.

“The lives and future of Ogonis cannot be traded by politicians whose glaring performance outcomes as leaders in our country have been corruption, looting and failures that have now left us with a dying environment, poor health facilities and a severely dysfunctional society.”
Nsuke spoke after visiting Ogoni communities as Biara, Bori, Boue, Kpean and Yeghe.
“The final verdict is that death is on the prowl in Ogoniland,” he said.
