New State Creation, MOSOP-USA demands For Ogoni State


The Movement for the Sur­vival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), United States of America (USA) chapter, has demanded the creation of an Ogoni State and an end to the 65 years of neglect and massive environmen­tal devastation in the area.

MOSOP lamented that successive governments have neglected the people to their plights caused by reckless oil prospecting and drilling by international and local oil ex­ploration companies with the support of the federal govern­ment, reports Daily Independent.

The group said just like other ethnic nationalities in the country have states that capture their peculiar aspira­tions, the Ogoni ethnic nation­ality also deserves a state that would cater to the sufferings of the people.

In a statement signed by Dinebari Augustine Kpuinen, President, MOSOP-USA, dis­closed that any further delay in creating an Ogoni state ir­respective of the name given to it, would amount to devastat­ing political marginalisation of the Ogoni people.
