UNEP Report: Example of Nigerian govt. nonchalant attitude
 By Nwaorgu Faustinus

Following the United Nations Environment Protection (UNEP) Report on the extent of environmental pollution and degradation in Ogoniland in 2011, and the federal government’s so to say nonchalant attitude to show concern to the people from the area, the Prince of Niger Delta politics, Prince Tonye Princewill has described the report as another example of the government keeping quiet on serious environmental issue that affect the well-being of the Ogoni natives.

Princewill who stated this in a media chat with journalists drawn from Port Harcourt based broadcast media recently, said in August last year the federal government setup a committee to study the whitepaper, and at the moment nothing has been done to assuage the suffering of the people from that axis, saying the situation calls for concern.

“Where is the committee? Where is the report?” Princewill asked, adding that he was not sure that somebody from Ogoniland was a member of the committee to study the UNEP Report. He also alluded to Niger Delta Technical Committee Report where he was a member and since its release to the federal government nothing tangible has been done about it, stating that the issue should have been addressed long time ago.

As a strong advocate of internal democracy and uniformity of ideology, in relation to political parties, Princewill opined that he hopes to see such issues (internal democracy and uniformity of ideology)take center stage at the on-coming convention of the People’s Democratic Party, nothing that the Peoples Democratic Party is at the beginning of an opportunity where reform will be possible if Bamanga Tukur becomes the National Chairman of the party.

Reacting on federal government approval for states to generate and distribute power supply/electricity and refutation of such approval by the state governor, Princewill advised state governments who can generate power to distribute it for the people with not be happy if the state government can generate and not distribute power without minding if the federal government will pay back. 

On how he thinks the Boko Haram issue should be handled as well as the resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta, Princewill said the use of intelligence is imperative in handling the sect as it is a multifaceted issue to wit; social, political and religious explaining that social, political and religious issues demand for social, political and religious solutions. He called on the authority to tackle not only crime but the root cause of crime and ensure the empowerment and engagement of repentant militants so they can fit well into the larger society.

Other issues discussed at the media chat include; revenue allocation formula, the need for sovereign national conference, the monorail project in Port Harcourt, his ambition for 2015, the inspiration on his billboard, call for a cashless economy among others.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
