” Also, the endorsement of Robomichael Nigeria limited by Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers of Ogoni should not be a problem, but what is important is for the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People, MOSOP, Ken Saro-Wiwa Associates, KSA, and Ogini sons and Daughters to be concerned and ensure that Robomichael Nigeria limited provides developments, employments, contracts and jobs for the Ogonis”
The group noted ” the law abiding Ogoni people should continue to provide the enabling and business friendly atmosphere for investors, including Robomichael Nigeria limited, the interests of Ogoni people can only be achieved through sincere dialogue, constant discussions.
