1. Post nominates Political/Labor Specialist Gbenga Amusan
for Labor Rights Training on September 23-24, 2004, in
Johannesburg, South Africa. Mr. Amusan has worked as the
Political/Labor Specialist for the Consulate (formerly the
Embassy) in Lagos for eleven years. Prior to working with
the Embassy and Consulate, he was a journalist with a major
English-language Nigerian daily newspaper. During his tenure
he has had major labor reporting responsibilities, and, as
Post expects a long staffing gap before the Labor Officer
position is filled, Mr. Amusan will have sole and expanded
responsibility for covering labor issues and developments in
southern Nigeria. He has on-going responsibility for
compiling data for Post's submission to the Human Rights
Report, the Trafficking in Persons Report, and the
International Labor Trends Report. He is not expected to
depart Post after his training. The cost of an economy
airline ticket from Lagos to Johannesburg is approximately
USD 1211. Post is prepared to pay Mr. Amusan's per diem,
lodging and/or other expenses.
