Ogoni: Senate Committee Probes President
$1 Billion Ogoni Land Budget
The Senate Committee on environment headed by Senator Oluremi Tinubu on Monday, paid a courtesy visit to Rivers state governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as part of their oversight function and to investigate the clean-up of Ogoniland.
It will be recalled that the Senate in June initiated moves to probe the President Muhamadu Buhari’s Ogoni land cleanup as the legislature directed its committee on environment to investigate the implementation of the cleanup.
The exercise which was launched by president Buhari cost an estimated $1 billion. The Senate’s move to issue the probe was prompted by Senator Oluremi Tinubu’s motion on Environment.
