Ogoni Youths Protest, Demand Political Justice In Rivers



Ogoni youths and old women stormed the streets of Port Harcourt on Monday to protest the non inclusion of an Ogoni candidate in the governorship election.

The protesters from Ogoni land, whose activities caused traffic jams on the streets of Port Harcourt, have spoken against what they described as political slavery.

According to them, political parties have denied the Ogonis the opportunity to fly their flags in the 2015 election.

Although the Police set up a road block in a bid to control the crowd, they continued their match towards the Isaac Boro Park, singing solidarity songs.

The political parties are, however, not taking the accusation sitting down. They insist their flag bearers are products of credible political processes.

The political parties in Rivers State may have conducted their primaries and presented their candidates for the 2015 election but the controversy is still raging.
