MOSOP: how to resolve Ogoni problems


PRESIDENT of the Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) Chief Legborsi Saro Pyagbara has said that resolving the Ogoni problems will require multi-stakeholder discussions involving Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), the Federal Government and the people.

He spoke yesterday in Boue, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State, while addressing a meeting of MOSOP’s kingdom coordinators.

Pyagbara, who was represented by MOSOP’s Publicity Secretary Fegalo Nsuke said that all parties must meet to resolve the problems, which he said had led to the death of over 4,000 and a generation of Ogoni leaders.

He accused the Federal Government and Shell of encouraging conflicts in Ogoniland by attempting to resume oil production, without resolving issues raised by the people.

MOSOP president said: “By attempting to resume oil production in Ogoni through allies of Shell like the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), Belema Oil and Robo-Micheal Limited, the Federal Government is actually looking for a way to cause serious crisis in Ogoni and kill us like they did in the ’90s.
