No smog is benign as no pollutant is safe, but most Port-Harcourt residents have carried on with life like the soot and smogs that have turned their garden city into grey is nothing to worry about. Even though, the Federal Government has declared a State of Emergency on this dangerous environmental situation, this has persisted and residents of the oil rich city have continued to inhale toxic air and bath in chemical residues that environmentalists and health professionals believe kill them gradually.

While nothing has been categorically blamed for this outbreak, Port-Harcourt is known to harbour many oil exploration firms, while gas flaring,and other highly dangerous industrial activities go on within and around the city.
This has being on for over one year now, and the appropriate authorities have certainly not done enough to arrest the situation.
The governments of Rivers State and the Federal Government, especially, the State and Federal Ministries of Environment should step up action to ensure that the lives of millions of Port-Harcourt residents are saved from further harm.
