Oil Exploration Has Left Us in Abject Poverty – N-Delta Agitators to FG


ABUJA – A coalition of Niger Delta agitators have lamented the level of environmental degradation and lack of essential amenities in the oil communities of Akwa Ibom State, pleading for urgent government intervention to save them from hardship and sequential extinction.

Precisely, the agitators alleged utter neglect of the communities by some multinational oil companies operating in the area, saying they have jettisoned their corporate social responsibility to the people.

They stated that their people had seen more woes, as they are exposed to inhuman treatment and abject poverty due to the exploration of oil.


The agitators, who conducted a tour of the communities also accused their leaders of scheming with the Oil corporations to rip off the people.

A statement jointly signed by the individual leaders of the coalition groups which included General John Duku for Niger Delta Watchdogs and Convener, Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators; ‘General’ Ekpo Ekpo for Niger Delta Volunteers and ‘General’ Simply Benjamin for Bakassi Strike Force, said the worst hit were Effiat Coastal Communities of Mbo LGA, Amadaka in Eastern Obolo LGA, Ibeno LGA and Esit Eket LGA all in Akwa Ibom State.

“The Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators is saddened by the level of injustice, neglect, marginalisation and the untold hardship multinational oil companies operating in Akwa Ibom State have exposed the people to. During the tour of the core oil producing communities in Akwa Ibom State by the coalition, they observed with great shock the abject poverty the people have been subjected to.” The statement reads.
