A fresh funding of N35 billion has been injected into the Niger Delta Amnesty programme for greater impact on the people of the Niger Delta region, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said on Tuesday.

He insisted that the cleanup of Ogoniland was continuous and would be extended across the country.

He spoke at the start of the second national summit of the National Council of Niger Delta (NCND) held in Akure.

“We have started with the cleanup of Ogoniland and we will continue with the exercise which is still ongoing. We will ensure clean up of all polluted areas. What we are doing in the area is called hydrocarbon clean up and this will not be limited to Ogoni land,” he stated.

Osinbajo, who disclosed that the Buhari administration had set up various inter-ministerial committees on the development of the Niger Delta region, said the Maritime University established by the Federal Government will kick off next month.

According to him, the Federal Government committed US$2 billion to the establishment of the university, which, he said, would focus on maritime training.

On his part, Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu said “issues of gross infrastructural deficit, security challenges and the general absence of social amenities expected in a modern society remain intractable.” (Daily Trust)
