MOSOP President, Fegalo Nsuke at Ogoni Rally Demand Justice Over Oil Production in Ogoni Lands

The Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) has declared that oil exploration will not return in Ogoni except the Federal Government allow the people of Ogoni to have a say in the emergence of the company that eventually gets the nod to drill oil in the area.

MOSOP made the position known during its congress and rally which was held over the weekend at the Gokana Central Field in Bera, Ogoni, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Nsuke said MOSOP led the Ogoni Struggle against Shell and therefore, its position must be taken into account in deciding which company takes over the oilfield.

Fegalo said: “We will not accept any option that does not consider the position of MOSOP on Ogoni oil, given the inputs it has made during the struggle that chased Shell out of Ogoni land.He also maintained that Ogoni Development Authority should be “operationalized”, which means that 20 percent of the resources that comes out of Ogoni should be committed to Ogoni development.He added that the “commitment “will go into a trust fund that will be managed by a third-party asset management firm that will give report regularly to the people via online on how the money is put to use.
