The Ogoni delegation at the conference included Pyagbara, Young Nkpah, President of the National Youth Council of the Ogoni People (NYCOP) and Celestine Akpobari, Coordinator, Ogoni Solidarity Forum (OSF), Nigeria.

The conference was held to determine the different approaches to enhancing the self-determination struggles of Indigenous Peoples on the continent of Africa.

The adoption of Pyagbara is said to have come after his thought provoking and emotional presentation on the topic, “Indigenous Peoples, the international human rights system and the quest for self-determination.”

He identified most African indigenous people were under a second wave of colonization, which is engendered and sustained by dominant ethnic nationalities in the respective African countries.
