The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has regretted the failure of the Federal Government to take any action to end soot crisis in the oil producing States.

He said his administration would not fold its arms and watch some deviant persons destroy the environment and health of the citizens.

Wike, who said these on Wednesday, during a meeting with the 23 Local Government Area Chairmen, the State Commissioner of Police and the Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, at the Government House, Port Harcourt, ordered the Chairmen to hire bulldozers and destroy every identified illegal crude oil bunkering and artisanal refinery sites in Rivers State.

He asked the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Eboka Friday to provide adequate security for the Local Government Chairmen as they embark on the mass destruction of illegal refinery sites across the State.

Wike said, “I will not relent in this fight. And all of you should hire bulldozers. All those areas where the illegal refinery sites are in the bush, in the creek, clear the place. Government will give you some money to go and hire bulldozers to go and clear the sites so that they will know we are serious.”
