By Abe Media Aide

Former representative of Rivers South-East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe has said that this year’s Ogoni Day Celebration is another opportunity for the people to come together and take stock to know how far they have fared since the inception of Ogoni struggle for equity and justice.

Abe, in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh Benson congratulated the Ogoni people on the occasion of the annual Ogoni Day Celebration, describing it as a unique time to appreciate one another while in pursuit of a united and prosperous Rivers State.

He stated that the foundation of the Ogoni struggle has always been anchored on justice based on a commitment to the principle of non-violence as set-out by the late environmentalist, Ken Saro Wiwa and other Ogoni patriots.

The Senator said: “As we mark another Ogoni Day Celebration, it presents an opportunity for us to take stock and appreciate one another and ask ourselves how we have fared in the actualization of our dreams for environmental justice and political inclusion.

“It should be a thing of joy and pride to all Ogoni people that we have remained resolute in our resolve and remained non-violent in our approach.

“I want to appeal to all Ogonis to bury whatever hatchet there may be, let us close ranks, so that working together, we can achieve bigger dreams.

“I also want to thank all Rivers men and women indeed, all fair minded Nigerians across the country who have shown great solidarity and empathy for the Ogoni struggle. People must understand that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
