Noting that the Plant complements FG’s environmental remediation efforts in Niger Delta, the Vice President said, “While this is a facility to treat waste generated on vessels, it is also a wonderful complement to the more general work on the environment which we are currently doing expressly regarding the clean-up of the Ogoniland and the innovative connective solutions to ending gas flaring developed by the NNPC.
“We would no longer be a country defined by the size of pollution challenges but instead by the wholeness of our remediation response and even more importantly, our preventive action.”
