“Today, on behalf of the Ministry of Environment, I presented a memo to the council requesting approval to procure some project vehicles for the hydro-carbon pollution remediation project.
“You recall that late last year, in December, the council approved some projects to do with power for the Ogoni people and remediation of some polluted sites.
“It was approved in light of the desire to ensure effective project supervision, particularly in the five water schemes.”
“And the upcoming 16 water schemes and the proposed shoreline remediation, as well as the proposed Center of Excellence to be built within Ogoniland, in view of the fact that we are going to have regular inspections by experts from outside the country, There is a need to provide project vehicles so that they can effectively inspect, supervise, and monitor the remediation exercise.”
According to the ministry, the vehicles include one 18-seat Toyota Hiace bus and one 30-seat Toyota Coaster bus, both of which are scheduled to be delivered in 2022. He also identified 11 Toyota Hilux double cabin, four-wheel drive, 2022 model (diesel engine), 15 Toyota double cabin, four-wheel drive, 2022 model (petrol engine), one Toyota Land Cruiser Twin Turbo, 2022 model, and two Toyota Land Cruiser V6 Prado units.
