By Isaac Job, Uyo

The Leadership for Movement for Survival of Izon Ethnic Nationality (MOSIEND) in the Niger Delta region has lauded Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) for rising in support of their non-violent approach to agitation for justice.

Rising from their four-day leadership training workshop held in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital on Thursday, participants hailed the local content agency for its support for a paradigm shift in the oil region.

Established in 2010, through the Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act, the Agency has the mandate to make procedures that guide, monitor, coordinate and implement provisions of the Nigerian Oil Gas Industries Content Development Act signed into law on April 22, 2010.

Speaking shortly after the workshop in Uyo, the President of MOSIEND Kennedy West, said the Ijaw group is working to bring down what he described as ‘ the red flag profile of the region’.

“Since there is time for everything, the leadership of MOSIEND holds the view that it is high time we began a new approach for addressing issues in our region.

“With the lessons, we have learnt so far, MOSIEND is pushing for extensive and robust community engagements to prepare them for a new model of achieving their socio-economic, political and environmental quest.

“We are hoping to leave behind us an enduring legacy of greater cooperation, purposefulness, and pragmatism in the handling of the advocacy issues in our region.”

West disclosed that investors were reluctant to explore the resources of the region’ and promised to change the narratives in the new order for the region.

He maintained that the group has commenced a pilot training programme for 35 Niger Delta youths aimed at impacting them with the ingredients of leadership needed in the 21st century.

The training expert Ajowale Ola said youths are equipped with standard training with international best practices that will guarantee a greater inflow of foreign direct investment and equitable resolution of conflict.

The chief trainer appreciated participants for conducting themselves throughout the training as more public agencies and private organisations are expected to embrace a paradigm shift in the troubled oil region.
