The leadership of
The Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People

The leadership of The Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People strongly condemns last Tuesday's attack on its president, Chief Legborsi Saro Pyagbara.

The attack on our president is not only a violation of his fundamental rights but also a threat to the tenets and foundation of our struggle which is anchored on non-violence.

We consider this attack a sacrilege as it is not just an attack on our our respected president but a direct onslaught against the successor of Ken Saro-Wiwa and will not be tolerated.

Though the attack is currently a subject of Police investigation, it is condemnable, degenerative, ridiculous and unacceptable.

The leading apex organization of the Ogoni People, MOSOP

The leading apex organization of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, has described last Monday's comment by the General Overseer of Salvation Ministries, David Ibiyeomie as an indication of deep rooted hatred against the Ogoni people.

Ibiyeomie on Monday January 16, 2017 during his 5 Nights of Glory Crusade described the Ogoni as the most wicked tribe in Nigeria. He said "in the entire Ogoni Land human Lives meant nothing as People can make each other Mad at will, the wickedness in that part of the Country was much compared to other Regions"  He further said," in Khana, you can make someone mad with NGN500"

Reacting to Ibiyeomie's comments, MOSOP Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke on Friday described Ibiyeomie as an ugly representation of the Nigerian Christian community. The MOSOP spokesperson wondered if expressing his deep hate for the Ogoni was Ibiyeomie's essence for organizing the crusade.

Nsuke said the Ogoni people were profoundly shocked by the comments of the senior pastor. "We are profoundly shocked that a supposed Christian leader who should be filled with love for other people will express such hate against the Ogoni people.

He further said it was regrettable that a a time when the country is making efforts to build national unity and integration, a supposed Christian leader could express such hate against an innocent population. Ibiyeomie needs to be informed that hate speeches don't build, they destroy and he needs to be very mindful of his public conduct in order not to jeopardize public peace.

The MOSOP spokesperson noted that the only thing that makes Ogoni exceptional is that as a people, we have decided to halt oil production on our land following years of neglect, environmental devastation and abuses and insist that production will not resume until it is properly negotiated. There is nothing that is happening in Ogoni that is exclusive and not replicated in other social settings within and outside Nigeria.

It is our wish that Ibiyeomie will help himself by respecting other citizens in the conduct of his church business and not engage in acts that could jeopardize public peace.

MOSOP therefore demands an apology from David Ibiyeomie and will again urge him to be very mindful of his public conduct.
