Group Urges Pyagbara Not To Destroy MOSOP
The Save Our Ogoni Project (SOOP) is worried over the impact the despicable plan to elongate the tenure of the Pyagbara led executive of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) could have on the future of the organization. We maintain that the present MOSOP executives are plotting to seek a confidence vote at a congress scheduled for September 2018 and use that as basis to suspend the forth-coming MOSOP elections and adopt their president (Comrade Legborsi Saro Pyagbara) to continue in office beyond December, 2018, when his second term officially ends.
We are concerned that for a human rights organization, these moves will not only destroy the democratic norms of MOSOP but also damage the reputation of MOSOP. We express our disappointment and dissatisfaction over this development and therefore condemn the action taken by the Pyagbara led executive, which are nefariously undemocratic and alien to the Ogoni struggle and runs contrary to the very provisions and spirits of the MOSOP ideals and its Constitution.
We are particularly worried that up till now, there is no plan put in place to set up an electoral committee to begin the process of conducting the MOSOP election that will usher in new executives to pilot the affairs of MOSOP from the local chapters to kingdoms and the national levels.
This conspiracy done by Pyagbara to destroy MOSOP portends enormous danger to the Ogoni struggle and the work of the hero’s of Ogoni and also could destroy our hard-earned reputation as an indigenous group.
SOOP is worried that MOSOP as a human rights organization which should be exemplary in the propagation of justice, good governance and democratic leadership is towing this part of shame under Pyagbara.
We, therefore, urge entire public to be aware of these plans by Pyagbara to destroy MOSOP and the Ogoni struggle, and will call on the Ogoni people to resist any attempt by the Legborsi Saro Pyagbara led Executive to force themselves on the Ogoni people even when their tenure end in December, 2018.
For peace and progress, let the Ogoni star shine brighter.
