'Shell has hijacked UNEP report implementation process, ERA/FoEN alleges', 29 Oct 2014: The inauguration of a committee for the implementation of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) report on Ogoniland is a welcome development but with the Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke in the driver’s seat, Shell has obviously hijacked the process, the Environmental Rights Action/Friends of the Earth Nigeria (ERA/FoEN) [alleges]...ERA/FoEN Executive Director, Godwin Ojo said: “We strongly affirm that Shell has hijacked this process through the minister of petroleum...who has left out vocal groups...Rather, an independent third party should be responsible for the management of such clean up funds...in conjunction with the National Oil Spills Detection and Remediation Agency (NOSDRA)...Given the antecedent of Shell in often declaring spill sites as cleaned up throughout the Niger Delta the firm has lost complete trust with the people and civil society groups and thus cannot be trusted...Shell should have no role in the clean-up process beyond the polluter pays principle”, Ojo insisted.
