Environmental Divastation in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria
Nov 7, 2012

I want to announce to the rest of the world that oil economy is a doomed economy, any nation yet to exploit oil on their land should just thank God and leave the oil to rest in the soil, if discovered.

Since oil started in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria, there has been
1. Land degradation as a result of regular oil spillages
2. Water pollution.
3. Community crisis over ownership of lands that play host to the exploration activities.
4. Food insecurity.
5. Displacement of people from their lands.
6. High mortality rate.
7. Underdevelopment
8. Joblessness.

These are the qualities of a region that produces the resources that enriches the pox of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

I want to urge you that the story behind oil extraction activities in any nation are the same.

THEREFORE

OIL SHOULD BE LEFT IN THE SOIL..........
This is the voice of Young Friends of the Earth Nigeria/ Students Environmental Assembly, Nigeria.

Yep...i think it would be so good and favourable to Nigeria if we can go back to agriculture and let oil rest in peace because the advantages of oil is minute compared to the disadvantages and since this disadvantages outweigh the advantages,there is no need resting on oil. The life of we, the Nigerians, should be more important to the country than the gain because oil has led to many things such as water pollution leading to insufficient food and displacement of some important aquatic organisms and even displacement of people around there, there is even increased disease and so on..
