Is there an environmental movement in Nigeria?



  1. 0 Votes

    Currently one of the biggest environmental causes in Nigeria with popular support is the boycott of Shell oil company activities in Ogoniland. Many groups have stepped up to protest against the environmental impacts and consequent human health impacts of Shell’s drilling and transportation of oil, including the Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), Environmental Rights Action (ERA), and Niger Delta Human and Environmental Rescue Organization (ND-HERO). Groups cite oil spills, gas flaring, lost land, and health problems resulting from Shell activities. While the Nigerian government receives huge revenues from the oil industry, the local populations affected receive no benefits, employment, or economic gain from the exploitation and degradation of their land.

    Yes. A main concern in the past 10-15 years has been Shell oil’s abuse of the country, and there are many groups against this. However, these groups have often been meant with violence and opposition from the Nigerian government.
