The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has accused its former president, Legborsi Pyagbara, of plotting to destroy the Ogoni Bill of Rights to pave way for the resumption of oil exploration in Ogoniland.
Newly elected president of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke, accused the organization's former leader of attempting to destroy the Ogoni Bill of Rights with a template listing Ogoni demands instead of pursuing the ideals of the founding fathers of the group to bring justice to the Ogoni people.
Nsuke said Pyagbara plotted the replacement of the Ogoni Bill of Rights when he set up a committee headed by Prof. Ben Naanen to work out a template containing Ogoni demands.
“Pyagbara wanted the recommendations of the Naanen committee to go through the Steering Committee, the Congress and the General Assembly to replace the Ogoni Bill of Rights with the recommendations of the Ben Naanen Committee.”
Nsuke also accused Pyagbara of compromising the integrity and mandate of MOSOP when he allowed the expansion of the committee to include the Supreme Council of Ogoni Traditional Rulers with the consent of the Steering Committee of MOSOP.
