Metro Workers Hired To Clean-Up Shell’s Polluted Ogoni Land Owed 17 Months Back Pay - Sahara Reporters



Staff members working for the Hydrocarbon Pollution Restoration Project are angry, over not seeing any movement for their hard work cleaning up Ogoni Land, and have not been paid for the better part of a year. In a public statement issued to members of the media, and which SaharaReporters also obtained, the staff members describe the details of their plight, in addition to the non-payment for their services running nearly a year and half.

It remains a complicated 17 month ordeal of the story of Shell Oil employee arrears, that the statement they issued addresses, with urgency, and where they demand public attention to a matter of deep concern.

They are the staff workers of the Hydrocarbon Pollution Restoration Project, known by the acronym HYPREP. It is a special project set up to implement the United Nations Environmental Program, known as the UNEP report, on Ogoni land. It is also a special intervention project that was formed back on the 21st of July 2012, by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
