The renowned environment advocate who made the appeal in Koko, headquarters of Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State, tasked the multinational oil company to adopt and adhere strictly to international environment best practices and put out the fire urgently to save the people from terminal diseases.

He said It is regrettable and debilitating to see IOCs carry out environmentally destructive oil and gas exploration and related activities in the Niger Delta region, alleging that they are deliberately exploiting the people for profits against the safety of the environment where they are making money from as they always take advantage of Nigeria’s weak environmental policies and bad governance to continually ruin the region’s ecosystem

Comrade Mulade also called for prompt action that would end the neglect of the environment by Federal and State Governments.

He lamented that the weak policy on environment by the government was giving impetus to oil companies to destroy our sources of livelihood and survival, adding that it was out of place for the people to suffer various forms of hardship and deprivation, while the few in power and the oil business people who should speak against these vices, keep mute because they have their interests to protect.
