Sale/Renewal of licenses for Marginal Oil Fields in Ijaw land
Today, 7 Dec 2020, we the 3 plaintiffs in suit No FHC/YEN/CO/81/2020 between High Chief Philip Brown Agu (OPU AGU VIII) & 2 ORS. VS HON ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE FEDERATION & 2 ORS. in a matter of serious concern to the Ijaw Nation, requesting an injunction restraining the Federal government from further auctioning licenses of Marginal oil fields as the processes were curiously shrouded in secrecy with the potential of causing irreversible harm to us and the entire IJAW nation. We were in court as earlier scheduled for the matter which was for hearing of the motion for injunction.
We have however, just been advised that court would not sit today. No reason was given why the court did not sit. In any event, as Ijaw people who have suffered as a result of the rape of our resources and degradation of our environment, we are ready to pursue the case to a logical conclusion.
This is to draw attention to the fact that we will be taking EVERY legal step to seek justice for ourselves and our people including generations yet unborn.
Enough of the violation of our fundamental human rights and back door practices in the oil sector.
Everyone including any IJAW sons/daughters and officials doing things against the interest of IJAW nation and people should take note that we are discerning enough to know their antics and they will have their day in the law courts and the courts of public opinion.
Enough is Enough.
