PRESS RELEASE: OGONI ISSUE

ABCD commends Yobo, charges OGONI youths

Albert  Badey Centre for Development (ABCD) yesterday at Abuja congratulated Joseph Yobo as he rounded off with his footballing career with a testimonial match at the Adokiye Amesiemaka Stadium, Port Harcourt. 


ABCD described him as a worthy ambassador of Ogoni and Nigeria. ABCD however charged Ogoni youths to emulate the outstanding qualities of this great son of Ogoni whose testimonial match attracted world renowned stars and administrators like Eto's, Moyes, Okocha and Kano.

ABCD said that his innate qualities of humility, hardwork and excellent relations combined with his footballing skills were responsible for his outstanding successes. This statement was made yesterday by ABCD's Secretary General Mr Suage Badey who charged Ogoni and Rivers youths in general to emulate Yobo and eschew all forms of violence.

Violence, he said can not take our youths to such lofty heights but rather diminishes one's God-given potential at the expense of life. He also commended the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People ( MOSOP) for recognising the 'Ogoni four' as true heroes 'who paid the supreme sacrifice that we may live'.

ABCD called for MOSOP to use its privileged position to turn around the rhetoric of some who claim to speak for the Ogonis for improved relations amongst the people of Ogoni.

 Badey described the situation in Ogoni as horrible and a devastating set back. Ogoni, he said is richly endowed with human and natural resources which if properly harnessed in an atmosphere of peace would improve its socio-economic/political space.

He maintained that the four Ogoni leaders of blessed memory, Mr Albert Badey, Chief Edward Kobani, Chief Samuel Orage and Chief Theophilus Orage were murdered while suing for peace and restoration of order at a time when Ogoni slid into anarchy. 


It is therefore of utmost importance that MOSOP flies the Ogoni flag on the altar of truth and honesty having recognised their meritorious service after 22years. Misrepresenting the facts concerning their death and the consequences that led to it in whatever guise, is dishonouring, insulting and denigrating to the service rendered by the 'Ogoni four'.

While we heal our wounds, let us please be mindful of the need not to make unguarded utterances. ABCD seeks to make peace in Ogoni and the state in general. Peace has eluded the Ogonis for more than two decades now. We must restore our core values love, respect and hospitality.

Signed:
Ola olabisi
Publicity Secretary

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
