Newly elected president of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni
People (MOSOP), Fegalo Nsuke has pledged strong commitment to self
determination and freedom for the Ogoni people in Nigeria.
Nsuke spoke yesterday in Mogho, Gokana local government area at a
congress of Gokana kingdom.
Nsuke told the Ogoni congress that the pprofound injustice against the
Ogoni people has destroyed the entire Ogoni nationality and must be
confronted and defeated.
“We have contributed over $100billion to the Nigerian economy, all of
that has been shared by Nigeria and nothing has been invested in
Ogoni. We must reverse this trend by demanding self determination for
the Ogoni people and that must be now” he said
On the Ogoni cleanup, Nsuke described the programme as a fraud noting
that the programme will not benefit the Ogoni people as currently
“All of the companies approved by HYPREP do not represent Ogoni
interests except one. This is not acceptable to us as the cleanup is
about us, we have paid the price and made all the sacrifices. They
must listen to us and not plot to take away our money to Abuja Lagos
and other places” Nsuke said.
“The cleanup is useless if it does not benefit us. They have not even
provided water for us as recommended by the report and this, we must
address” Nsuke said.
