Emami raises alarm over Oil spill in Delta

The Prime Minister of Warri Kingdom, Chief Ayirimi Emami has raised alarm over pollution of Warri/Escravos River in Delta State, which was purportedly caused by spill from the Warri Escravos Crude Oil Line.

 

Chief Emami who disclosed that he discovered the environmental pollution weekend when he travelled to his home-town of Ugborodo, Warri South-West Local Government Area to perform his civic voting right, called on the Minister of Environment, Suleiman Hassan and Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe kachikwu to immediately set up machineries in motion for prompt cleanup of the spill, to prevent epidemic and further destruction of aquatic lives.

According to Emami, apart from the Ministries of Environment and Petroleum Resources, other relevant government agencies such as NOSDRA should launch inquest into the possible cause(s) of the crude oil spill, to avert recurrence with a view to saving the country from economic loss, “considering the importance of Warri Escravos Crude Oil Line to the country”.
