The Ogoni people have declared that the Nigerian state must end the injustices against Ogoni to resolve the prolonged Ogoni conflict. Speaking at a public rally in Bori, traditional headquarter of the Ogoni people on Saturday, August 24, 2019, president of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke said Ogoni is seeking for one thing. According to Nsuke, that one thing is justice, that one thing is freedom, that one thing is for our rights to be respected by the Nigerian state.

We must as a people stand up to say we insist that our rights must be respected. We cannot, as Nigerians be contributing so much to the Nigerian economy and we get nothing. They deceive us to tell us that oil resumption will create jobs. That is a lie. They drill the oil and sell it. When monies are shared from the federation account, because there is no Ogoni state, we get nothing, he said.

The MOSOP leader said the Ogoni people were giving the government the opportunity to talk. We are willing to talk. Ogoni is willing to sit with the government and talk.

Ken Saro-Wiwa said, “he does not expect oil resumption in Ogoni to commence until it is properly negotiated”

We cannot talk about oil resumption when the things that prompted the conflict has not been addressed.

The Ogoni problem is not just about the cleanup but the fundamental issues of our resources being taken away, our land being taken away from us and we have lost everything, he declared.

“As long as they continue to cheat us, as long as they continue to deprive us of what belongs to us, as long as they continue to take away our resources from our land and give us nothing, we will continue to protest these injustices and that is what we are doing until they give us what belongs to us.

MOSOP will continue to protest the injustices that has been done to Ogoniland no matter how mush Shell will sponsor hooliganism and terror against Ogoniland, we will not submit” he said
