We are pleased to inform the general public that our recent plan to launch our new website in August 2012 has been rescheduled to today, Monday, July 23rd, 2012. This is deemed necessary to allow time for our International Representative, Mr Kate, Wisdom Deebeke to fit into his planned to-do list for the month of August. He is currently part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paraolympic Ambassador supporters and has also got some hospital induction sessions in the NHS in the month of August and so would not have enough time to launch the site to the web on August 1st as earlier planned.
Our site has been up and running, just that we have been checking some plugins and applications to ensure that everything was working fine. A breakdown of the components of the site are listed below:
- Main HURAC website where all information about HURAC are found.
- A subdomain dedicated to the Ogoni struggle detailing everything about the Ogoni people and the 6 kingdoms, Ken Saro-Wiwa and other Ogoni 8.
- another subdomain entirely dedicated entirely to news from within Ogoni/N’ Delta, Nigeria and the world at large.
- finally, a subdomain named: OGONI ONLINE FORUM where all Ogonis can meet, discuss and connect with each other. It represents all the 6 kingdoms in Ogoni.
A new site will soon be added that will talk about Human rights issues in Ogoni and the Niger Delta. We were hoping to put all these in place before August, but plans just changed.
The site’s URL will be made public this Monday for everyone to access, register and start exploring it.
Many thanks for your patience all this while.Kate, Wisdom Deebeke New Website Project Coordinator.
