Jibril at a meeting with the Deputy High Commissioner of the British Embassy in Abuja noted that while $177million has been raised for the cleanup, about $23million is expected from refineries before the end of October.

“The board of trustees have opened an account and that account has been credited with the sum of $177million.

“This is what is supposed to be given by the oil majors and to pay for the cleaning and restoration of this degraded areas.

“An initial bill of $1billion was to be used over a period of five years. So, with the $177million for this year 2018, the balance of $23million is expected to come from the refineries.

“We have written to inform the President, he has given directives that the Petroleum Ministry should handle that issue. So, I believe before the end of the month, we should raise the remittance of the balance of $23million that is supposed to make it $200million for this year.”

The Deputy British High Commissioner, Ms Laure Beaufils, in response assured of the British Governments commitment in addressing climate-related changes in Nigeria.
