Today is the Ogoni Day. We remember all the fallen heroes of the land. We remember the words of the Nigerian national anthem: “The labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain.” Very true words if we stay alert!
We remember that it is one year and five months since the UNEP report on the assessment of the Ogoni environment was released. We shall not forget!
Solidarity with all the Ogoni people. Today we are all Ogoni!
