Comrade Sheriff Mulade, Chairman, Kokodiagbene Community in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, has urged the Federal Government to deal with multinational oil companies over their refusal to end gas flaring in the oil-rich Niger Delta.

Comrade Mulade, in a press statement in Warri, claimed that the multinational oil companies were not ready to end gas flaring in Niger Delta and implored the Federal Government to compel them to adhere strictly to environmental best practices to save the environment and to bring defaulters to book.

Comrade Mulade who is also the National Coordinator, Centre for Peace and Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), a non- governmental organisation said, “It is amazing that justice is far from environmental offenders in Nigeria. President Muhammadu Buhari should take a critical stand on the matter by addressing this ugly menace in Nigeria.”

“It is unfortunate that multinational companies who obey and adhere strictly to environmental best practices in their countries and other parts of the globe, refuse to end gas flaring in the Niger Delta region.

“But the Federal Government should stop romancing with multinational oil companies and ensure that they do the needful now as far as ending gas flaring in the region is concerned.”

He also challenged the National Assembly to compel multinational oil companies to end gas flaring now in the region.

“Our lawmakers should be up and doing with regards to the enforcement of the law on gas flaring.

“The Government,” he stated, “must sanction those multinational oil companies not ready to put an end to gas flaring.” (Independent)
