The federal government amnesty programme for Niger Delta ex-militants is on course and it has restored stability to the region, the special adviser to the president on the programme, retired Brig. Gen. Paul T. Boroh has said.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja weekend, Boroh said there was clear attempt at misinforming the public on the programme as President Muhammadu Buhari has moved the programme from one of just training to empowerment.
He said “aside massively reducing the number of consultants tied to the programme, we have moved from the past and instilled a proper and verifiable database which has become the basis for all our activities unlike in the past where there was no coherent and reliable database.”
Boroh said that not only has massive verifiable debts ‎incurred since 2012 been cleared, but that the Amnesty office has since moved to start the empowerment of ex-agitators in addition to the regular training.
“We have cleansed the agency’s books and in the process weeded off a lot of interests which exposed the office to funds mismanagement and leakage in the past,” he said.
