Today is a significant day for the Niger Delta. Commencement of Handover of sites to qualified contractors in first phase of remediation of 21 lots across the 4 LGAs of Ogoniland. Handover will be followed by mobilization of equipment & personnel to sites for the actual clean-up.
Of course some will ask ‘Why now?’ Answer: If you’ve followed the Clean Up news you’ll realize that the procurement process (by which these contractors were selected) has been ongoing for a while.
Has taken time cos:
1. Remediation is major work
2. Procurement is time-consuming
[When I say remediation is major work I mean to say the ‘Clean Up’ is not ‘environmental sanitation’. It’s a complex technical endeavor

NB. Alongside Remediation work, there will be work along the lines of provision of potable water, livelihood training & health impact studies.]

When President @MBuhari came in 2015, his administration immediately introduced the #NDNewVision which encompasses robust solutions, targets and initiatives aimed at ensuring that the people of Niger Delta benefit maximally from the region’s oil wealth.

Part of the #NDNewVision, President @MBuhari initiated the take-off of the Nigerian Maritime University in Okerenkoko, Delta State.

The University was granted approval by the National Universities Commission (NUC) in Jan. 2018.

In April 2018, it commenced academic activities.
