Clean up the oil industry in the Niger Delta

Your Excellency, I am very concerned about the impact that oil industry pollution is having on the human rights of people in the Niger Delta. Traditional livelihoods such as fishing and agriculture have been damaged and the reduced access to safe food and clean water has put thousands of people's health at risk. I urge you to: - Enforce existing laws and reform legislation to ensure the oil industry is effectively regulated. - Publicly commit to clean up oil pollution in full consultation with affected communities. - Ensure that the human rights impact of oil industry pollution is closely monitored and the results made publicly available.
