In her remarks, Ikeazor urged the management staff of the ministry to extend the same unalloyed support given to her to the new minister of state.  

She assured that she will continue to collaborate with the Federal Ministry of Environment, particularly in the ongoing Ogoniland clean-up exercise in the Niger Delta region.
