The contamination has, grossly, affected that residents of the area to the extent that life could be considered miserable to them. They residents of Ogoni Kingdom lack access to portable water because their water bodies have been polluted with oil spillage.

The level of pollution in Ogoni Kingdom was so life-threatening to the extent that it was very difficult for the dwellers of the kingdom to practice farming, considerably, as their counterparts in other parts of the country.

Many administrations have ruled the country, tapping from the resources of Ogoni Kingdom, but the cleaning of the land was always on the inferior list.

Luckily, President Muhammadu Buhari commenced the cleaning up of the land and water bodies in Ogoni Kingdom, some years back. The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has awarded contracts for six water projects in the area, while 400 Ogoni women have been trained in various small businesses in agriculture, aquaculture, poultry, etc

According to a report that was published on the Leadership, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been able to recover about 15.3 hectares of land in the Ogoni Kingdom. The 15.3 hectares is said to be good for any for of agricultural practices, with no fear of loss owing to contamination that the area had suffered in the past.

Although, President Muhammadu Buhari has made remarkable impacts in other areas, the achievement of his administration in the clean up of Ogoni Kingdom deserves accolade from not only the sons and daughters of the area but the citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The clean up of Ogoni Kingdom will, certainly, restore lively activities to that part of the country and the dwellers of the ares will not be deprive of their rights to live a life that is free of contamination.
