MOSOP Condemns Shell's Entry into Ogoni For Oil Resumption Activities
MOSOP further warns that the oil corporations will be held responsible for any crisis that erupts in the area. "We are concerned that while Shell/NPDC has refused to make its contributions for the Ogoni cleanup, it continues to make irresponsible maneuvers to re-enter Ogoniland for oil production. Inadvertently, Shell/NPDC wants Ogoni to pay for the cleanup of the environment" Nsuke said
The statement warned that oil resumption is not on the Ogoni card at the moment. Moreover, the state of the Ogoni environment cannot support further production of oil at this time. MOSOP said it is actions like this that has pitched the communities against the oil companies and led to gross human rights violations and the current crises in the entire Niger Delta. MOSOP warned that failure to heed our demand regarding immediate withdrawal from Ogoni, we would have no choice than to take all civilized steps to ensure justice for the Ogoni.
