Some past Leaders and Activists of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), Leaders of Thought and Elders from Ogoni have waded into the crisis that led to the factionalisation of the Movement.

They “met on Wednesday, 20th January, 2016, to seek means of resolving the crisis and properly reposition the Movement,” former MOSOP President Ledum Mitee said in a statement signed on behalf of the conveners of the meeting.

The statement, a copy of which was made available to News Express, said: “At the end of the meeting, a Resolution Committee was set up comprising Ledum Mitee, Professor Don Baridam, Dr. Meshach Karanwi, Rev. Dr. Abraham Olungwe, Lenusikpugi  Kpagih, Chief Monday Abueh and Ms Rose Nwigani, to meet with all sides, Traditional rulers and other Leaders from the area, with a view to resolving the crisis and reposition the Movement appropriately in order to meet its avowed objectives.

“Accordingly, the meeting appealed to all sides to the present crisis to cooperate with the Resolution Committee and to refrain from actions or public statements capable of undermining the current peace process.”
