In addition, I further implore you to champion the cause to end corruption, misrule, internal colonialism and arrogance of power in Nigeria.

Dear Rt. Rev. Msgr Matthew Hassan Kukah,

I write to congratulate you for the great rise on your episcopal ordination and installation as Bishop of Sokoto Diocese today, Thursday, September 8, 2011 following your recent elevation by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

On behalf of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, I thank God for your lift. God remains the greatest judge. God puts down one, and lifts up another.

In your capacity as Chairman of the Ogoni –Shell Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation Presidential Committee, I implore you to use your new position to work towards the meeting of minds in the Ogoni situation, in a way that can usher in peace and promote economic and political justice in Nigeria. In addition, I further implore you to champion the cause to end corruption, misrule, internal colonialism and arrogance of power in Nigeria. The Ogoni people are staying strong, and we will continue to count on your support.

The history of Christianity reminds us that Christianity was officially persecuted for three centuries. The same history tells us that Roman Christianity is the mother of Western civilization.

The Ogoni people are full of hopes and dreams that the day is coming when the Ogoni story will become the story of Christianity and Western civilization.

Dr. Goodluck Diigbo
