MOSOP-USA Gives Condition For Oil Resumption In Ogoniland

There is confirmed information reaching MOSOP USA that some Greedy, self-centered Ogoni indigents, government agents, and saboteurs, who have consistently undermined Ogoni efforts to be self-governed within the Nigerian state, have gone to Abuja to meet with President Bola Tinubu to negotiate oil resumption in Ogoni.
MOSOP USA urges the president to heed the FOUR (4) conditions we have set for oil production in Ogoni. These are not arbitrary demands but crucial prerequisites that must be met before such operations commence.

1. GRANT OGONI A STATE IN NIGERIA (POLITICAL AUTONOMOUS STATE)
Our ultimate goal is for Ogoni to be granted a State to be self-governed within the Federal Republic of Nigeria, similar to other ethnic nationalities. This would ensure Ogoni has a say in national budgets, as our resources are being misused. It is a step towards Ogoni controlling their political affairs, having equal representation, and using a good proportion of their resources for their development. The right to protect their boundaries and environment against further degradation, forceful encroachment, domination, and annihilation.

2. CLEANUP OGONI ENVIRONMENT PROVIDES FIVE BASIC ESSENTIALS
Clean up the previous contaminants and ensure the environment is safe for oil production. Gives its citizens the five essential government obligations to guarantee that Ogoni is part of Nigeria: good roads, clean water, electricity, equipped medical facilities, and security.

3. EXONERATION & IMMORTALIZATION OF THE OGONI 9:
The exoneration and immortalize the Ogoni Nine (9), which includes Gbenemene Suanu I of the Ogoni Nation, Kenule Beson Saro-Wiwa, Comr. John Barinaaziga Kpuinen, Dr. Barinem Kiobel, Paul Levura, Baribor Bera, Daniel Gbokoo, Saturday Dobee, Felix Nuate and Nordu Eawo is not negotiable. We urge the government and people of Nigeria to straighten their records. These men remain innocent of the charges against them that led to their brutal death. MOSOP USA demands that these men be exonerated. In honor of their memories, November 10 should be declared an Environmental or Civil rights national holiday in Nigeria.

4. REHABILITATE AND PAY COMPENSATION
We demand that the Ogoni people be compensated for all the atrocities meted against them by the Abacha administration. We call on the President to call back the citizens of the 16 Communities that the Abacha administration sacked and flattened in both Oyigbo and Tai LGAs. Rehabilitate and pay Compensation to those who have been internally homeless and hopeless refugees. Also, pay compensation for the 4,000 Ogoni people who were massacred in cold blood by the Rivers State Internal Task Force created by Abacha while Major Paul Okuntimo executed the federal order to make Ogoni a wasteland. Those are what it takes for resumption in Ogoni.

THE PRESIDENT TO STAY TRUE TO DEMOCRACY
Furthermore, MOSOP USA recalls that before Amed Bola Tinubu became President of Nigeria, he was protesting against bad governance and campaigning for true democracy as an activist with members of MOSOP USA in the United States of America concerning the injustice and genocidal actions meted out against the people of Ogoni in Nigeria.

MOSOP USA, therefore, demands that the President, Amed Bola Tinubu, should act within the ambit of the law and stay true to the cause of democracy/activism that we knew him for to provide good governance and justice to the people of Ogoni and Nigeria at large.

POLITICAL AUTONOMY FOR ALL ETHNICITIES THE ONLY WAY FORWARD
Additionally, MOSOP USA uses this opportunity to advise the President. That granting politically autonomous states is the only solution to Nigeria’s multiple problems and the only thing that will keep it together as one nation. Nigeria operates on injustice; its leaders are so deep in greediness that they oppress and victimize the poor. Greed and corruption have made Nigeria ungovernable. The rule of law has no bearing on the people. Politicians are now above the law. Truth has been buried; eventually, every ethnicity is now raising their heads, crying for justice, seeking survival like the Ogoni people. This nation shall soon collapse, except its leaders listen to the voice of wisdom.

PRESIDENT TO CONTROL THE EXCESSES OF FORMER GOVERNOR WIKE
MOSOP USA also appeals to the president to control one of his own whose activities have stiffened and threatened your government: the Federal Minister of the Federal Territory, Mr. Nyesom Wike, claiming ownership of Rivers State. We want the president to investigate the $300 million belonging to the Ogoni people paid by NNPC as compensation, embezzled by Governor Nyesom Wike.

MOSOP USA needs peace in Rivers State. We need Nyesom Wike to stop terrorizing the sitting Governor Sim Fubara. We call on the President to prevail on Nyesom Wike to allow the sitting governor to manage the affairs of Rivers State in peace, just as he was allowed to govern when he was governor and prepare to pay the Ogoni people money meant for the development he embezzled.

OGONI NEED THE COLLEGE OF APPLIED TECHNOLOGY SO DO OTHERS
Finally, Ogoni needs well-equipped Federal Colleges of Applied Technology (FCAT), where the children will acquire skills and trade to meet the employment demands of the 21st century. We therefore inform the president that this FCAT will solve the problem of Ogoni underemployment as they have the most unemployed youths in Nigeria.

Having the Youth acquire basic trades and skills will help them create jobs for themselves and others, gradually eliminating unemployment and boosting the nation’s economy. We advise Mr. President to consider rebuilding the nation by providing skills and trades to the youths.

SUMMARY
Conclusively, Ogoni opposes oil exploration and exploitation. All oil companies remain persona non grata in Ogoni. That prerequisite includes.
Clean up all old contaminants to ensure the environment is safe for oil production. Grant Ogoni a political autonomous State within Nigeria. This will guarantee equal representation, the right to control our political affairs and the protection of our boundaries and environment. Exonerate and immortalize the Ogoni Nine. Recall all Ogonis in exile. Rehabilitate internal refugees into their homes, which were sacked and flattened by the Abach administration. Provide the five essentials to development, which include clean water, good roads, electricity, security, and medical facilities.
Control Governor Wike’s excesses. We need peace in Rivers State, Wike should stay clear and allow the Governor to do his job. Investigate the 300 million dollars he embezzled meant for Ogoni. Build a federal college of applied technology in Ogoni.

Sincerely,

E-Sign

DineBari Augustine Kpuinen
President, MOSOP USA
