…Says It’s Unrealistic …Probes Abuse Of Expatriate Quota

The Senate has described as unrealistic the One billion Dollars ($1bn) FGN\Shell fund for clean up of oil spill sites in Ogoniland of Rivers State as recommended by the United Nations, and urged the Federal Government to review upwards the said fund.

This formed part of Senate’s resolution following a motion sponsored by Senator Yusuf Dati Baba and three others on the insufficiency of the fund to cater for the actual monetary requirements of the exercise.
