The Federal Government has said that 10 polluted sites have been cleaned up in the ongoing Ogoni Cleanup Project.

The Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abdullahi said this while addressing reporters after his first meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Mr Abdullahi said the administration does not envisage completing all the phases of the cleanup exercise.

“However, they are phased projects. We do not envisage that we can finish the entire project within the lifetime of this government.”

Abdullahi said: ”There is nothing miraculous about our approach to the cleanup operations, it is going to be a very pragmatic, practicable, and quick-win solution.

He added that the president has given marching orders to ensure that the concerns raised by the partners, particularly Shell, UNEP, Agip, Total, and other parties, and indeed the stakeholders of Ogoniland, are addressed to ensure that the process goes on hindere
