Kate, Wisdom Deebeke is an Ogoni human rights activist, who has the passion to saving and rejuvenating life for his people. He was among the pioneer crew that facilitated the formation and progress of the club alongside Nwidum Jeremiah Tuaka (HURAC Pioneer Chairman). He is a valiant individual who pursues his dreams without giving up until he comes to conclusion. He joined HURAC in 2008 after the summit by the Movement for the survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP). Ever since then, he has the love for HURAC and has been a great contributor to the development of the club. He is a clever Nigerian who during elections in the club had made every necessary effort to ensure that the best candidates were elected into offices and guarantee optimal performance of their duties. He has been a mediator between MOSOP and the students ensuring that everybody is affected. He aims at taking the club to an international level. He was given the mandate to act as the INTERNATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE in a Youth Capacity building workshop in Port Harcourt by one Miss Murphy Maggie (a Dutchwoman) a delegate at the workshop from the Unrepresented Nations & Peoples Organisation (UNPO) alongside with Barikpoa Nwako. During his tenure, he served many reputable offices in the club among which were

On the day of his send-forth, he relinquished some of these offices to some devoted HURAC members that will be listed in the later part of this publication. Kate ensured that students took part in all lectures, seminars, symposium, workshops and talk-shows organised by MOSOP and USAID. He taught the students most of the basic principles in human rights and impacted morals into them. He was always present at club meetings, motivating students to be members of the club and telling them the associated benefits of being a HURAC member.
Kate and his working crew facilitated the establishment of HURAC in most of the secondary schools in Ogoni including CSS Bori, BMGS Bori, ACGS Bori, PTEC Bori and GCHS Taabaa. He was ambitious to see that HURAC stood firm in all these secondary school before he left to further his studies in the United Kingdom in 2010. His working crew while in Bori had been
Although he has left to further his studies, he still has the club at heart and has always thought of rejuvenating and standardising the club. He keeps enquiring about the progress of the club. He has made the club public by creating an official HURAC facebook account, page and group for the club. With his expertise knowledge in computing, he also created and designed this website for the club. Not only has he done all these, but has remained a legend in the history of HURAC. He remains an important figure in the heart of all HURAC.

I am very honoured to have become a HURAC member. HURAC as a club has been very useful to me as it exposes me to some of my fundamental human rights. Not only that, it also teaches me the way forward to advocate for my rights when I am being deprived of or they are being infringed upon. So many people think that fighting for their rights has to do with physical combats and violence, but in the real sense, it’s not supposed to be as they think. There is a concept called ‘advocacy’. It is always applied in the course of redeeming one’s rights in order to respect the rule of law and other governing principles of the land. For the proper emancipation of the group of a group of people, violence is not required, but advocacy. It should be done in a peaceful and nonviolent way to avoid bloodshed.
HURAC teaches you all these stepwise procedures to follow in order to redeem your rights. I have always found pleasure in being a HURAC member right from when I started in 2008. As the person who headed the club, I ensured that I show a good leadership role so that others can follow my footstep, and a better HURAC will reign forever. I have always tried to imitate the speeches and actions of the celebrated playwright and hero: Late Ken Saro Wiwa. I will not forget to mention MOSOP International Advocacy Officer, Mr. Legborsi Saro Pyagbara for his role played in the realisation of this great club in Bori. He has always been with us, given us all ears and ensuring that we partake in all seminars and workshops and the accruing benefits
…”HURAC teaches you all these stepwise procedures
to follow in order to redeem your rights”.
I have decided to serve HURAC to the best of my interest and to be reckoned with as a devoted human rights activist. I also urge everyone to join this great club to promote and enlighten people on their fundamental human rights.
Once again, you are welcome to our website, where every detail about HURAC is discussed. We hope you enjoyed being with us online navigating and exploring HURAC on the net…Spread the campaign around and be blessed.###
