Full Text of the speech Delivered by the MOSOP President on the Ocasion of the Flag Off of the Ogoni Cleanup by President Buhari

 On behalf of the Ogoni people, its spirits and fallen heroes, I welcome you to Ogoniland.

At the outset, I must convey the deepest appreciation of the Ogoni People to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari for fulfilling his electioneering promise to the Ogoni people that he would address the environmental crisis in the land. This flag-off today of the clean-up and restoration of Ogoniland is indeed a testament to a leader whose words had become his bond and sets him apart from several other politicians home and abroad. The President had indeed become Africa’s latest export to the global community on issues of leadership integrity, honesty and discipline. We congratulate him and all those who had believe in him through this journey of change, particularly his wife, Mrs. Aisha Buhari that had propelled him to attain this great feat. A noble character is the result of the surrender of self for the service of love to God and man, we believe in the President’s nobility of character. We also thank the indefatigable Hon. Minister of Environment, Mrs. Amina Mohammed and her team, for making this day a reality.
