When election comes in 2023 they will start another Ogoni clean-up exercise - Wike mocks FG

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has accused the federal government of playing politics with the Ogoni clean-up as recommended by the United Nations Environment Programme.

Speaking during the inauguration of the 16.06-kilometre dual carriage Sakpenwa-Bori Highway by the Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyichukwu Ugwuanyi, in Bori, Khana Local Government Area of the state, Wike alleged that the federal government brings up the Ogoni clean-up exercise at every election year to deceive people of the community.

According to the Governor, the community which played a pivotal role in the economic development of Rivers State and the country deserves more than it is getting at the moment. 

He said; 

“I am not like Federal Government. They promised you they will do Ogoni clean-up. Has it been cleaned? I promised you road, have I done it? So you can see the difference between our party and their own party. The difference is clear.

“When election comes in 2023, they will start another clean-up. You people don’t even ask question. Why is it a year to election that Ogoni-clean up will always commence? Now that there is no election, are they doing clean up? Watch from next year they will start clean up.”
