"The government has relinquished control over the offshore areas of our industry. Norway was tough regarding oil companies from the start. You now have an almost embarrassingly large pension fund. The situation for Irish communities, however, is as in Ogoniland in Nigeria - oil is a curse,”
Noo Sara Wiwa is the daughter of Ken Sara Wiwa. She was brought up in England, but her parents brought the children to Nigeria every summer. She severed ties with Nigeria after the murder of her father, but later she returned to discover the beauty and complexities of the country.
