The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), have challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to pay an on-the-spot assessment visit to ascertain the level of environmental degradation orchestrated by oil multinationals in the Niger Delta region.
The group, in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Brig Gen Moduch Agbinibo, and posted on their website Saturday afternoon, said: "Mr President, come and see for yourself what the host communities are going through in the hands of Nigeria government and the multinationals."
They challenged the president to visit Ugborodo, Ogulagha, Bonny Island, Ibeno and Brass to behold how the people are suffering in the midst of plenty.
"President Buhari should visit Ugborodo host to Chevron crude oil Export terminal/EGTL gas plant, Ogulagha host to Shell Forcados Crude Oil Export terminal/tank farm, Bonny Island host to Shell Bonny Crude Oil Export terminal/NLNG gas terminal, Brass host to Agip/ENI export terminal, Ibeno host to ExxonMobil Qua Iboe crude export terminal.
"These are just the export terminals not talking about the numerous oil and gas flow stations and the oil Wells that criss cross the length and breadth of the Niger delta," the statement laced with pathos, read.
