Rivers State Government have been badly affected by the dangerous soot which has disorganised the entire state.
The Rivers State Government is been condemned for not taking actions and more, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said he regretted that the APC Federal Government and her agencies have politicised the issue as they have refused to work with the Rivers State Government to curb the menace.
Speaking during a Courtesy Visit by Civil Society Organisations of Rivers State on Thursday at the Government House Port Harcourt, he stated; “We have been fighting with the Federal Government that the military must find refined ways to destroy illegal refineries. We are not in charge of security agencies. They take their orders from Abuja”.
See some reactions from few residents in the state;

Nigeria is doing its best to kill us all. This short documentary by @FizzyThatcher about the profit-driven air pollution in Port Harcourt is so deeply saddening. #StopTheSoot

I was in the Lagos, I complained about the Odour at Ojota
To avoid future Medical Jamboree, I quietly went and balance in my Delta State. #StopTheSoot
