Saro-Wiwa wished for a Just Society, clean Niger Delta environment – MOSOP

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People MOSOP has called on the Ogoni people to remain committed to the cause of justice and the success of the cleanup program managed by HYPREP noting that the freedom of the Ogoni people from discrimination in Nigeria and the restoration of the Niger Delta environment particularly that of the Ogoni were two passionate wishes of late Ken Saro-Wiwa.

In an address delivered to the meeting of MOSOP chapter leaders held in Bera, Gokana local government area yesterday, president of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke said the Ogoni people should not only voice their concerns on the Ogoni situation but they should also actively play a key role particularly in respect of the cleanup program to get the desired success. This according to Nsuke requires that the Ogoni people must monitor and evaluate the remediation work of HYPREP and not leave it to politicians and businessmen who are mainly concerned about profits and may not be committed to the social impact of the program.
Nsuke said supporting the cleanup to work will make Ken Saro-Wiwa happy even in death.
The MOSOP President however regretted that the people were discriminated against politically and alienated from the cleanup project and therefore knew little or nothing about the work of HYPREP. He however assured the grassroots coordinators that MOSOP was now demanding to know what HYPREP is doing and will straighten things in the interest of the people, ensure that the UNEP report is implemented as expected and as recommended
The MOSOP leader noted that the Ogoni environmental remediation program managed by HYPREP was coming at great sacrifice for the Ogoni people and it is the responsibility of the Ogoni people to get it to succeed.
“We will continue to engage, we will criticize where necessary but ultimately, we must ensure the cleanup program succeeds” Nsuke said yesterday.
The MOSOP leader urged the Ogoni people to get involved in the work of HYPREP and not leave the process to politicians who essentially are interested in the business side of it and may just see the project as a source of revenue to finance elections.
He further said “it is only the people’s involvement that can save the project, ensure that the necessary actions such as water provision are implemented and a clean Ogoni environment can then be feasible”
