UNEP and the Executive Director in the NewsUNEP Ogoniland ReportLeadership (Nigeria): Ogoni Oil Spill: FG To Review Report – Orubebe
10 August 2011Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Peter Orubebe, yesterday appealed toNigerians to exercise patience over what he termed slow response by the federalgovernment to the recent report on massive oil pollution by Shell Petroleum DevelopmentCompany (SPDC) in Ogoni land, Rivers State.He said that government wanted to study it critically, before keying into therecommendations outlined by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).Elder Orubebe, who explained that due consultation with all local and internationalstakeholders was necessary before the next action plan and noted that Jonathan’sadministration was not ignorant of the implication of oil spillage on human life and the eco-system.The Minister who made this plea while fielding questions from newsmen after playing hostto a delegation from the multinational oil giant Shell , said that the report must be carefullyconsidered and properly reviewed , if the objective of sponsoring the in-depth researchmust be accomplished.The Niger Delta boss further advised the delegation from Shell to subscribe to dialogue tosettle the lingering battle with Bonny Community in Port- Harcourt, as issues so far

resolved through dialogue between the federal government and aggressive communitieshave brought about lasting peace in the once restive region.On his part, Shell’s Executive vice president, Sub-Saharan Africa, Mr. Ian Craig reiteratedoil major’s commitment to work with Nigerian government and other stakeholders toensure that the region was hooked to the trend of socio-economic growth anddevelopment.Craig who admitted that the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) report onthe devastating impact of its oil production activities gave a better understanding about theoil spill in Ogoni land , said, it would give them an opportunity to actually set about thewhole reconciliation agenda in the affected areas with other stakeholders.He said, “I acknowledge that the UNEP report which we whole -heartedly welcome, willgive us the opportunity to set out the needed strategies for restoring the village to its lostglory. We are committed to working out the recommendations”.He, however, pleaded with the Ogoni People to bear with his company and said that theywould, as a matter of fact , take time out to study the about 1,000 page report.He pledged his company’s commitment to, after due consultation with all stakeholders,collaborate with federal government to address the emergency measures listed in thereport.

10 August 2011As a follow-up to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) indictment ofShell Company on the pollution of Ogoniland, Dutch Royal Shell Sub-Saharan Africa VicePresident, Ian Craig and other top executives Tuesday stormed Abuja seeking clearanceon government’s position on the UNEP report.At a meeting with the Minister of Environment Hajiya Hadiza Mailafiya, the Shell team saidthe visit was meant to seek possible ways of partnership as it concerns environmentaldegradation through oil exploration in the Niger-Delta.Though the meeting was held behind close doors, THISDAY gathered that it may not beunconnected with the UNEP indictment of both Shell and the Federal Government on thepollution of Ogoniland.Sources within the ministry told THISDAY that though Shell executives came for acourtesy visit to congratulate the minister on her appointment, most of the talks centred onthe recent report by UNEP which was submitted last week to President GoodluckJonathan.When approached by journalists on the UNEP indictment, Shell’s Country Chairman andManaging Director in Nigeria, Mutiu Summonu, declined any comment.
