Nnimmo Bassey, Director of Health at Mother Earth Foundation, warned that removing illegally refined products will not solve the state’s pollution problem.

Mr. Bassey also asked the federal and state governments to take action against gas flaring as a first step toward reducing soot pollution.

Christian Otiahasa, another environmentalist, urged Governor Nyesom Wike to appoint Commissioners of Environment and Health in the state as soon as possible.

Mr. Otiahasa further stated that the soot will continue to accumulate due to a lack of environmental justice on the part of the federal and state governments.
