Policy Alert, a passionate organization with a strong desire for citizens’ welfare and development paid a courtesy visit to the Clan Head of Esit-Eket and the foremost youth leader of Eket/Esit-Eket today. This is ahead of its #WetinWeGain town hall meeting slated for Friday, October 11, 2019, at Esit-Eket LGA.
Which is in response to the grievances shared by Rhoda Peters regarding the ills that have befallen her community during the FOI Training for CSOs & Community Persons organized a few weeks ago by Policy Alert.
According to her, “Oil spill has made fishes go extinct, drinking water is colourful and the only hospital ‘Cottage Hospital’ has no medical Doctor”
This scoping/advocacy visit revealed the activities of oil & gas companies within their domain and unraveled the sufferings of this community. We are taking up their complaint to parent companies of the oil & gas industries in the UK & USA.
