Nigerian News U Can Use @ dopereporters.com/

  • By Abiodun Yusuf From Port Harcourt The Civil Society coalition on Environmental Action has warned the government and people of Rivers State on the dangers of black soot troubling the state. The group noted that the soot may not be visible due to the rainy season and recent efforts by the state Governor to reduce activities of illegal refineries, but it’s still very much around.   Mr Boma Amadi spoke for the coalition, under the umbrella of We You Project, which was supported by Stakeholders Development Network.

She urged government to address the menace of black soot urgently. She said since 2016, the issue continues to pose grave danger to health of residents of the State.  

Amadi highlighted some of the recommendations and steps to be taken to address environmental pollution in the State.  

The coalition also advised government to tackle economic challenges in the state, such as unemployment and multiple taxation, to ensure there are opportunities for young people to be gainfully employed.   

They urged residents of the state to desist from indiscriminate dumping of waste and activities capable of contaminating the air, land or water in the state.
