The jobs range from crew managers to unskilled youths of Bagega, where current rehabilitation is ongoing, to “capacity building” for environment ministry staff, said environment minister Hadiza Mailafia.

In addition to crew managers, 19 HND graduates got jobs on the remediation sites, along with 32 OND graduates and crew supervisors.

Up to 213 “unskilled youths from Bagega village” were also employed, she noted.
