Black Soot In Port Harcourt Is Killing Me Slowly. by Nobody: 7:45am On Jun 02, 2018
Please who can stop these people? They are killing me(us) gradually.
Every day as early as 4a.m heavy black soot will be massively released to the people of Port Harcourt.
My area is getting a larger percentage of it. Last four days I couldn't wake up from my bed to prepare for work. I was terribly weak with blaring headache and too tired to move. I managed to sluggishly wake up and immediately I got to work I started having severe headache and vomiting.
I landed in a hospital. Just got discharged after staying three days and coming back to meet heavy black soot again this morning.

I always experience shortness of breath ones they start releasing this terrible soot.
Why will something like this that constituent hazards to human life be going on unabated?

Why are the authorities keeping quiet over this calamity? My heart bleeds.
Last time I enjoyed fresh air was when I travelled to my village. Is terrible here in Port Harcourt and is like my own body system reacts terribly against this soot.
This is serious!

Sorry, There is absolutely nothing you can do about it. In Nigeria, people who are given an opportunity to hold power always abuse it no matter how small the power is.
They will laughing and mocking at any one that constitute an opposition and never think about whether they are doing the right thing or not. It happens in all government controlled institutions. Just eye service. But unfortunately, hate won't let the government correct them. They simply just join in singing the mocking song. That's why nothing can be done about it.

It's really sad. In 5 to 12 years most residents of port Harcourt will be diagnosed with Black lung disease: A disease of the lungs that is caused by inhaling coal dust and sooth which in some patients can lead to progressive massive fibrosis of the lungs and severely impaired lung function.

Simply put cancer of lungs will be wide spread. It's not a joking matter we are slowly dying in Port Harcourt.

You people should arrange a mass protest and invite international media to cover it.

Such protest was organised before which I was part of. Funny thing was that the actual day of the protest, they ceased their activities and the air that day was fair.
Few days after that they came back in full force.

Please, please and please, do a body detox and clean away the effects of this pollution from your entire system. This is what I recommend for everyone who lives around such areas and may not be able to relocate.

After the detox, you will do a general system maintenance of yourself and you will be definitely okay.

I can send you a video of how this can be done. You can contact me through my signature
