A Victory For The Niger Delta?
The court has hereby declared that gas flaring must stop now. Not in two years, not next week, now. The only problem is that in a country where the President has shown utter disregard for rulings of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, he may well regard a ruling of the Federal High Court with as much respect as a Brobdingnagian would have shown a Lilliputian.
I fear this will turn out to be yet another paper victory.
