Ogonis: Coming Together for the Common Good

Ogonis: Coming Together for the Common Good

MOSOP President /Spokesman, Dr. Goodluck Diigbo has asked his fellow Ogoni citizens to become more forward looking; beyond the confines of selfish individual gains, hopes and desires.”

In a speech to mark the 17th Anniversary Remembrance of the November 10, 1995 hanging of the Ogoni Nine, which was observed at Ken Saro-Wiwa Peace and Freedom Center, Bori, he said that Ogonis were no longer second and third class citizens in their homeland.

Diigbo, who spoke via phone from New York, said that he was very optimistic about progress, saying “the dreams of our long struggle are at hand; and urging Ogonis to stick together to embrace steps forward for the common good.”
MOSOP President sang a Christian hymn from Ancient and Modern, No. 585: All things bright and beautiful; a metaphor that the indigenous people of Ogoni are also God’s creation, and are equal to all other people.
The solemn event was concluded with a peaceful match on the roads and streets of Bori and ended up at the Ogoni Polytechnic, Bori.
