MOSOP compiles database ahead of Ogoni cleanup

03 October 2016, 18:21

Abuja - The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) is generating a comprehensive database of graduates, contractors and artisans in Ogoniland ahead of the full implementation of the Ogoni clean-up exercise.

Legborsi Saro Pyagbara, President the apex mass-based organisation of the Ogoni people, said the process of compiling a database of Ogoni professionals, graduates, skilled and unskilled personnel were necessary to access Ogoni's human capacity and the level of training required for the engagement of the Ogoni people for the clean-up.

“As part of our preparations, we will launch a database of Ogoni graduates and contractors so we can have a good understanding of our capacity as a people ahead of the full implementation of the cleanup exercise,” he said.

MOSOP, Pyagbara said, they needed data on artisans, all skilled and unskilled personnel so that they could competently determine their training requirements.

Pyagbara hinted that the full implementation of the cleanup exercise was expected to be accompanied with sustainable livelihood programmes like job creation, entrepreneurship development, training and massive infrastructural development.

In June 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari launched the process to cleanup Ogoniland.

This was followed with the inauguration of the Governing Council and Board of Trustees of The Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project – the implementation framework set up by the Federal Government for the cleanup of Ogoniland and other impacted communities in Nigeria's Niger Delta.
