GAS FLARING IN NIGERIA

January 17, 2014

WHICH GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT GRANTED THE PERMIT TO SHELL TO CONTINUE FLARING GAS?
During the demonstration at the Shell Headquarters in the Netherlands against Gas Flaring in Nigeria, the interviewer in the video below put to the Shell Representative that, Shell was ordered to stop gas flaring in Nigeria on 1st May 2007 and why haven’t they stopped? In his response, the Shell spokesperson said, “..WE HAVE A PERMIT FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR THE FLARING”. Which government department granted them the permit to continue the flaring?

Which sane government will give permission to a company to carry out an activity that has been outlawed in the company’s host country? Are our rulers twisted upstairs or is it greed that is causing the foolishness and madness?

During the protest at the Shell Headquarters, there was no police intimidation, firing of rubber bullets or arrests, so the Government of Nigeria should not roll out the police when the DIRECT ACTION ON GAS FLARING against the Oil Companies begin in earnest. THIS INSANITY MUST STOP.
