Prominent politicians give speeches and remind the youths on how Ken fought for Ogonis to enjoy from the oil money generated from their land and so on.
They also talk about the creation of an “Ogoni state”.
These speeches are made by prominent Ogonis, all of whom are men: Senator Magnus Abe, Ledum Mittee of MOSOP, Victor Giadom, etc…
They talk about so many things but it all boils down to – Ken Saro Wiwa, oil money and political power.
Nothing for the numerous educated Ogoni women.

P.s: Ogonis, according to oral tradition immigrated from Ghana.
