Minister of Transport and former Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, today, said he did everything possible as the governor of Rivers state in the last administration, including fasting and prayer, to prevail on the former President Goodluck Jonathan to implement the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Report, that was released by the UN to give remedial direction to the cleanup exercise of Ogoni land.
Amaechi said this during the flag-off of the Ogoni cleanup exercise by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo today June 2nd.
“We did everything possible as a sitting government to get our brother and our leader, the former President to gt make the president implement the UNEC report, everything. I mean everything including going to church to pray but the UNEC report was not implemented. There is no way the cleanup exercise will not create jobs. The micro economics in Ogoniland will change. May god bless President Buhari” he said.
