3. Clean up all the affected areas
4. Create steady scholarships from the oil companies as part of compensation for the environmental degradation such as gas pollution and oil spill in the rivers
5. Investment in agriculture (fish farm and poultry etc.) and this should be Nigeria plan B in case we ran out of oil in future.

The fostering of human rights across the region is very vital because this is the hallmark of democracy and will help achieve the above.” The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) and other militant groups have increased attacks on oil facilities, demanding a greater share of Nigeria’s oil wealth for the impoverished but oil-rich region.
