3 years ago | 25

THE National Union of Ogoni Students (NOUS International U.S.) has made another call on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to stop the activities of Shell Petroleum in Ogoni, Rivers State. The group recalled in a statement dated March 21, 2019 that 26 years ago, under the leadership of the late Ken Saro Wiwa, Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) and Ogoni people declared Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company persona non grata and forced Shell out of OML 11, for non-payments of rent, royalty or lease, as well as for Shell to account “for its predatory ecological war waged on Ogoniland, Ogoni people and Ogoni enclave, as well as the entire Niger Delta.” The statement, which was later made available to journalists, was titled: “Ogoni Sacrosanct Rights Over Its Oil can’t be Abrogated” and was jointly signed by the President of (NUOS International USA), Pius Baripkoa Nwinee, Secretary-General of (NUOS INTL. USA), Sampson B. Npimnee, Coordinator of Ogoni Lives Matter (OLM) International USA, Cornelius J.S Dumerene, and the Secretary General of OLM International USA, Tuate Ganago. – Independent – Mar. 26, 2019 @ 18:42 GMT |
