Ogoni Clean Up: See Why Monarch Is Happy UN Didnt Include Monetary Compensation


​The Chairman of the Supreme Council of Ogoni Traditional Rulers, His Royal Majesty, Chief Godwin Gininwa , Gbene -Mene of Tai , has thanked the United Nations for not including compensation for citizens in their environmental programme report on Ogoniland.

The monarch spoke at his home country , Korokoro in Tai Local Government Area of the state during a sensitisation visit of Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project in Korokoro and Ueken communities.


Gininwa , an ex -Chairman of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers, expressed happiness that the United Nations in the report did not recommend that compensation be made to anybody , noting that the compensation would have ignited fighting and killing in the area .

“ One thing I enjoy is that there is no compensation . If there were, we would have killed ourselves. They tied the whole process around projects . It is commendable . What we need is that you give our youths jobs because they will not come for any compensation , ” he said .

Gininwa regretted that the clean-up of the impacted sites in Ogoni had not commenced and urged the Federal Government to ensure speedy commencement of the remediation.
