Worried by unabated gas flaring and its adverse effects on the lives of oil-bearing communities, the Federal Government has been urged to adopt necessary mechanisms to end the phenomenon.

The call was made at a workshop organised in Port Harcourt yesterday, by Gas Alert for Sustainable Initiative (GASIN), in collaboration with the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA) for communities in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Some of the concerned communities included Akala-Olu, Enito and Oshie in Ahoada West Local Council.

A communiqué issued at the end of the meeting, urged the government and oil companies to be sincere in their promises to put an end to gas faring in the country.
