MOSOP Warns Politicians Against Sabotaging Ogoni Clean-Up Process
THE Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has warned politicians and their cronies against politicising the planned Ogoni environmental restoration process.
A statement signed yesterday by the Media and Public Affairs Advisor to MOSOP President,Bari-ara Kpalap, alleged that some politicians had arranged plots to advance their parochial political and economic interest capable of thwarting the success of the exercise.
Kpalab, however, warned those who he described as saboteurs to steer clear of the implementation arrangements of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report,stressing that any attempt to undermine the process would be viewed as affront against the collective interest of the Ogoni people and would be decisively resisted.
Kpalab said: “We insist that the environmental degradation of Ogoni land, which has compromised our general wellbeing, is not a political issue, and dragging the fast-tracking actions into the murky waters of politics demonstrates inexcusable callousness that should be condemned by all, especially lovers of safe and clean environment.
