Uduaghan said that the action marks a new chapter in the affairs of the region while reacting to the announcement of the president on Thursday.

He said yesterday that the amnesty package signed by Yar’adua after Thursday’s National Council of State meeting in Abuja was a welcome development.

“I welcome and endorse completely, the amnesty announced by the federal government to our youths who were forced by certain grave circumstances to engage in violent acts in the Niger Delta region.

“I wish to specially thank Mr President for taking the bull by the horn and accepting to adopt this policy which I believe, will go a long way to ease the crisis in the region”, the governor said.
