A congress of the Ogoni Community Development Network ((OCDN) which held on Thursday in Bori Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State has condemned delays in the implementation of the Ogoni cleanup by the government of Nigeria and rejected attempts by the government to resume oil production in Ogoniland without negotiations.

The Congress which primarily focused on the forthcoming Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) elections and the cleanup of Ogoniland also came up the following resolutions as reported in a communiqué signed by OCDN Secretary Alubabari Taanadee Deekor.

“Congress demanded that the president of MOSOP, Legborsi Pyagbara, should resign from the governing board of HYPREP immediately to allow MOSOP play its role as a watchdog on the project; “Congress rejected the plans by the present executives of MOSOP to extend their tenure in office by whatever means, contrary to ARTICLE 11 (1) of the MOSOP Constitution, and resolved to resist moves by the Pyagbara led MOSOP executive to extend its tenure beyond December 2018.

“Congress called on the president of MOSOP, Pyagbara Legborsi to preserve the democratic values of MOSOP by immediately commencing the process of conducting elections as the tenure of the present executives comes to an end in December 2018.

“Congress called on Gbo- Kabaari and other Ogoni leaders to rescue the dwindling popularity of MOSOP by calling for a congress of the Ogoni people to constitute an electoral body that should conduct elections and elect new executives of MOSOP at all levels should the Steering committee of MOSOP fail to constitute an electoral committee before the end of September, 2018,” the communiqué said.
