MOSOP Coordinators Kick Against Planned Protest

MOSOP Coordinators Kick Against Planned Protest

Jul 1, 2014

The Kingdom Coordinators Forum of The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has dissociated itself from the planned protest by a faction of MOSOP led by Mr. Legborsi Saro Pyagbara. A statement signed by the Chairman of the Forum, Frank Jonah said the protest will not only endanger the lives of people but will in no small measure work against the interest of the Ogoni in the present political dispensation.

Mr. Jonah Spoke to newsmen in Bori, Ogoniland at the end of a consultative process with chapter leaders of MOSOP.

The MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators expressed deep concern about the security of lives in a protest in Abuja or in any part of the country given the present security situation.
The Forum expressed displeasure over the insensitivity of the Pyagbara-led group to the present realities and strongly condemned the call for a street protest at this time.

The Coordinators therefore urged the FCT Police authorities to ensure that no protest of that sort is allowed in any part of the FCT noting that the real motive of the protest is to embarrass the government rather than the implementation of the UNEP report as claimed by the Pyagbara led MOSOP.

The MOSOP Coordinators also expressed worry about the deep cooperation between the Rivers State Government and the Legborsi Pyagbara led MOSOP whose activities continue, not only to embarrass the Ogoni people, but jeopardizes every effort at resolving the crises surrounding the non-implementation of the UNEP report on Ogoniland.

While calling on all Ogonis to reject the cleanup protests, The MOSOP Coordinators urged the federal government to dissolve the present HYPREP and setup a more transparent and credible agency to oversee the implementation of the Ogoni UNEP report.

Signed,
Letom
Media Assistant to Frank Jonah
Chairman, MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators Forum
