MOSOP Presidency: Caretaker Committee Plot Fails in Court

The first major post-election victory for the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) was recorded yesterday as a federal high court sitting in Port Harcourt brushed aside an attempt to setup a caretaker committee for the movement.
This followed the refusal of key parties to the suit to sign a document doctored by some parties including Legborsi Pyagbara, Bari-ara Kpalap and Prince Biira, Naabulobari Nazigha-Lue and Keeper Gbaranor, . Those who refused to sign and thus rejected the caretaker option include the newly elected president of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke, chairman of the 2018 electoral committee Chief Emmanuel Nkala and the former deputy president of MOSOP, Chief Dr. Fortune Okwah Chujor.
 
The dubiously assembled caretaker committee as so-called had been the initiative of a group believed to be anti-MOSOP and dominated by advocates of oil resumption in Ogoni. They include King G.N.K Gininwa, Dr. Peter Medee, King Samuel Nneeh and HRH Taalor Nwidae Tornwe
 
The so-called caretaker committee members were to include the following persons:
 
1. Legborsi Pyagbara
2. Bari-ara Kpalap
3. Nabulobari Naaziga Lue
4. Prince Biira
5. Victor Wisdom
6. Keeper Gbaranor
7. Barr Felix Kembe
8. Chief Theophilus Dike
 
 
Nsuke, an outspoken critic of Shell won the December 2018 election. Nsuke had also been unwavering on his stance against forceful oil resumption maintaining that oil resumption in Ogoni must be negotiated to avoid further bloodshed and killings by the Nigerian military.
 
Nsuke won the presidential election of MOSOP last December, defeating his only rival, Lazarus Tamana who at the time was coordinator of MOSOP in Europe.
