Nigerian Tribune: No plan to re-admit Shell into Ogoniland – MOSOP

BOLAJI OGUNDELE, Port Harcourt – 15.06.2006

Ogoni people in Rivers State have denounced a recent report that the oil giant, Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), would soon gain access back to the oil fields in their land.

A national daily had recently quoted the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Edmund Daukoru, as assuring that the SPDC would soon go back on full operations in Ogoniland as plans were already being put together to facilitate a reconciliation meeting between the company and the community, relying on the success of the recent reconciliation of the Ogoni 13.

But in a statement circulated in Port Harcourt by the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), and signed by its Information Officer, Bari-ara Kpalap, the people said the talks between them and Shell had not reached any stage that should suggest optimism.
