Ogoni cleanup: FG is deceiving Nigerians, nothing is happening there – activist attacks govt, Shell

Ogoni people in Rivers state have insisted that the federal government of Nigeria was paying lip service with the widely acclaimed cleanup exercise, just as he contended that there was nothing like cleanup in Ogoniland.

Ambassador Prince Victor Kirika, an activist from Ogoni, told journalists in Asaba, Delta state that the said cleanup was deceptively flagged off to hoodwink the people of Ogoni into voting Senator Magnus Abe, insisting that Nigerians should visit the land and “you will see that there is no cleanup. The federal government is a criminal, they should go to court and I will face them.”

He said the people have being deceived for too long, “and we can never sit down and watch them taking away what belongs to us.”

He faulted the $1billion earmarked for the fight of Boko Haram in the north east adding that the action was to the detriment of the Ogoni people whose livelihood has been destroyed without any effort by the federal government to embark on a holistic cleanup and restore the living condition of the people.

He said since the Vice President Yemi Osibanjo asked the multinational companies to relocate to their host communities, the companies have refused, asking “have you seen any of them in the Niger Delta?”

He asserted that if only $2million is expended out of the $49billion on Ogoni land for the cleanup, “Ogoni land will look like heaven.”

He vowed that he would stand the federal government and Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) in court following evidences at his disposal, saying “whatever way they want it, we are going to meet in court. They should be ready for me, I am coming after them.”

He said that the Nigerian judiciary has been corrupted; hence the people are seeking justice at the International Court of Justice, adding: “We know we can never seek justice in Nigerian court, that is why we are running to the International Criminal Court of Justice and while this case will be going on, we will be crying to the whole world. Heaven and earth will hear our cry that the Ogoni people have suffered so much.”

He revealed that the crude oil if it loses its value, the Ogoni people would use it as an alternative for kerosene, “so if we don’t have anything to do with our crude, we will use it to make firewood and it will save us from buying kerosene. Why are they crying over our headache?” he asked.

He said he was given a peace ambassador because of his immense contributions to the amnesty programme in the Niger Delta region, saying “every billboard and jingles were done by me. As I speak to you, the federal government is owing me N795million, they have not paid me. They only gave us N205 million, the process is on, I am demanding for my money.”

He vowed that nobody would induce him to abandon the fight he believes in, noting that “the 50 per cent of the $49billion will be given to Ogoni people. The money is not going to pass through me, neither my company”, promising that the money would get to Ogoni people, “I am not a criminal like Shell, I put it to you that Shell is a fraudster.

“When Shell invites Ogoni chiefs for a meeting, after the meeting, they will take them out for lunch and give them food and after that they will give each of the chiefs N3, 000 for transport. When you go to the records, they will send to Shell International that Ogoni chiefs came and we hosted them with N22 million. I told you, these people are 419ners. See, I hate shell and we can never sit down and watch them deceive us like this again.”

He also lamented that Ogoni people do no longer have farmlands to cultivate saying “the oil has spoilt everything that we have. There is no good water, when you come to Ogoni land, you will see children drinking from the well but when you go to Shell, they lie about projects they have not executed. I have never seen a criminal in my entire life like Shell.”

He called the company to leave the land while it prepares to appear in court, “we will never accept shell again in our lives”, he declared.
