MOSOP Dissociates From Protests Over New Polytechnic

Press Release

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) wishes to notify the general public that it has not authorized, has no connection and completely dissociates itself from today’s protest over the renaming of the Rivers State College of Arts and Science to Port Harcourt Polytechnic.

MOSOP wishes to state its position on this issue: We are not opposed to the establishment of a new polytechnic in any part of the state. We understand that education is on the concurrent list and we cannot deny the right of the government to establish new tertiary learning centers in any part of the state. We also do not think that every new higher level learning center should be established Ogoni.

Our concern is that the establishment of tertiary institutions in the state will not not affect the funding and quality of education.

We urge interest groups to be objective in their agitation and desist from actions that are inconsistent with the objectives of the Ogoni struggle for a clean and safe environment and from political and economic marginalization.

Signed:

Fegalo Nsuke
Publicity Secretary
The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People(MOSOP)
