Right to a Clean and Healthy Environment: The Panacea to the Niger Delta Struggle

  •  Chizoba I. Okpara    


Even with the Amnesty Package and the United Nations Report on the Clean-up of Ogoniland, the environmental and developmental challenges of the Niger Delta still remain daunting. The militant youths have continued with the kidnap and hostage taking of oil workers which has more recently spread to other states and regions, for a ransom. Worse, environmental laws and legislations are still being churned out. Having taken an international comparative analysis, this paper proposes a declaration of the Right to the environment as a sustainable solution to the Niger Delta crisis.
