Nigeria’s Environment Minister, Amina Mohammed returns to Ogoniland


    For the second time in two weeks, the Minister of Environment, Mrs Amina  Muhammed in company of Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Amnesty, Brig-General Paul Boroh have visited polluted sites in Ogoniland.

    The team  were led on a guided tour by Comrade Celestine Akpobari,the  National Coordinator of Ogoni Solidarity Forum to polluted Sites in Goi  and Bodo Communities.


    Akpobari, while reacting to the visit of the Minister to the polluted sites in Ogoniland twice within 14 days of her last visit said it was clear indication more than ever that President Buhari would be visiting Ogoniland sooner than anticipated.

    According to Akpobari: “The Minister told the Ogoni people today in Bori that after briefing the President on  Ogoniland and the outcome of the stakeholders meeting,  he asked her to go back Ogoni to look at the sites where he will choose to launch the clean up.

    The clean up of polluted sites in Ogoniland was recommended by the United Nations Environmental Programme, UNEP report, which was  submitted to former President Goodluck Jonathan on 4 August,2011. But he failed to implement the report.
