The Movement for 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 clean-up.

The MOSOP Publicity Secretary, Fegalo Nsuke, made the disclosure in a statement made available to the News of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday.

Mr. Nsuke said Legborsi Pyagbara, MOSOP’s President, made the announcement after a meeting between the organisation and representatives of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), in Port Harcourt.

Mr. 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 clean-up.

“As part of our preparations, we will launch database of Ogoni graduates and contractors to enable us have good understanding of our capacity as a people ahead of the full implementation of the cleanup.

“We also need data of artisans, skilled and unskilled personnel to enable us determine our training requirements,” he said.

Mr. Pyagbara said that the implementation of the clean-up was expected to be accompanied with sustainable livelihood programmes like job creation, entrepreneurship development, training and infrastructure development.

President Muhammadu Buhari launched the clean-up of Ogoniland on June 3.

This was followed with the inauguration of the Governing Council and Board of Trustees of the Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project (HYPREP).

HYPREP is the implementation framework set up by the Federal Government for the cleanup of Ogoniland and other impacted communities in the Niger Delta.
