According to reports, the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) has commenced the process of generating comprehensive database of graduates, contractors and artisans in Ogoniland ahead of the full implementation of the Ogoni cleanup.
MOSOP Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke disclosed this in a statement made available to the News of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja yesterday.
Nsuke said MOSOP President, Legborsi Pyagbara made the announcement after a meeting between the organisation and representatives of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Port Harcourt.
Pyagbara explained that compiling the database of Ogoni professionals, graduates, skilled and unskilled personnel was necessary to access their capacity and the level of training required for the engagement of the Ogoni people for the cleanup.
“As part of our preparations, we will launch database of Ogoni graduates and contractors to enable us to have good understanding of our capacity as a people ahead of the full implementation of the clean-up.
“We also need data of artisans, skilled and unskilled personnel to enable us to determine our training requirements,” he said.
