MOSOP Urges Environment Ministry Not to Cause Crisis

The movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, has called
on Legborsi Pyagbara and the ministry of environment led by the
minister not to cause crisis in Ogoniland.

President of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke made the call yesterday in Bori,
headquarter of Khana local government area during a tour of the MOSOP
head office in Bori.

Nsuke said MOSOP wants to make it clear that Pyagbara is not in charge
of the organization any longer as every claim he could make to the
presidency of MOSOP had been lost following the expiration of his
tenure on December 31, 2018 and therefore, the Ogoni people will not
welcome any visit initiated by Pyagbara for the minister or his

Nsuke used the opportunity to call on the Nigerian president,
Muhammadu Buhari to caution the environment ministry noting that
following a change in the leadership of MOSOP which saw the
inauguration of the new executives on January 4 this year during the
annual Ogoni day, any visit of the minister or his representatives
without the consent of the Ogoni people could lead to a conflict and
should be avoided.

The Ogoni people, we must say, will resist every attempt to disregard
their decision on the leadership of MOSOP which has been expressed by
the emergence of Mr Fegalo Nsuke as the new president of MOSOP.

Nsuke said the desperation of people whose tenure have expired and yet
will want to conduct a fault cleanup is clear sign that the Ogoni
cleanup funds is in danger.

Nsuke called on the Ogonis to arise and defend our collective heritage
and stop whoever wants to toy with our rights to a dignified life.

assistant, Comrade Sylvanus Adamgbo
