300 Ogonis for Management Training

300 Ogonis for Management Training

300 Ogonis are undergoing“adaptive management” training to acquire skills required to upgrade leadership at village and district levels in Ogoniland.

The five-week program offers participants practical lessons, middle level planning and executive skills in administrative management and leadership.

Registered participants include village and district elected representatives, MOSOP and its affiliate leaders as well as other non-profit organization leaders.

In a message to the opening in Teyork today, January 30, 2013, MOSOP President/Spokesman, Dr. Goodluck Diigbo said that although Ogoni has a significant number of formally educated men and women; there has been a growing culture of lack application of acquired knowledge to Ogoni agenda and needs of the people.

Diigbo said while the program is not a substitute for formal eductation, the goal is to provide grassroots leaders with an on-the-ground outlook; focused on leadership content and productive outcome.

“Ogoni is confronted with leadership shortcoming; arising from generational gap and ignorance. I will like it very much, if participants can discover solution to the inability to apply knowledge, through the use of adaptive leadership and management skills,” Diigbo stated.

MOSOP Secretary General, Hon. Dum Ade John Budam, a professional teacher and a graduate of English Language, who is also a trainer-trainee, said 59 men and women are taking part in the program as trainer-trainees.

The program is co-sponsored by MOSOP, the Ogoni Central Indigenous Authority, Partnership for Indigenous Peoples Environment (PIPE) (an NGO in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations), and Diplomatic Services – a business services corporation serving the diplomatic community in New York.

So… Boris Johnson is promising that he won't be holding a snap general election, if he's chosen as the next UK Conservative Party leader. Reportedly, he is even making that promise a feature of his leadership campaign, since a vote for Boris would therefore mean (wink wink) that his colleagues wouldn't have to risk their jobs and face the wrath of the British public until 2020.

Nothing has epitomised the presidency of Barack Obama quite like his Supreme Court nominees.

Yet Obama has consistently skipped over the judicially qualified liberals and gone for a succession of centrists... More>>
