Ex-Militants Urge New Boss To Dismantle Bad Eggs In Amnesty Office
The new Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Co-ordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof. Charles Dokubo, has been urged to make haste in dismantling the bad eggs in his office to avoid the pitfalls of Gen. Boroh, who was sacked last month.
The NDREA, in a statement signed by its National President, Ex-militant General Ebiowe Ayado, said the group is very confident that Prof. Charles Dokubo, will effectively deploy his robust wealth of experience to pilot the affairs of the presidential amnesty programme to greater heights.
He however called on him to beware of the bad eggs in the presidential amnesty office that misled his predecessor and created impediments for the smooth and effective implementation of the mandate of the presidential amnesty programme.
His words: “He should weed out the bad eggs and inject fresh blood into the programme and engage very patriotic and committed persons as his aides to enable him actualise his mandate.
“He should do away with all the aides that misled the former S.A, Paul Boroh and appoint only very honest and dedicated aides to help him succeed in his new assignment. He should never recycle or engage all those who have questions bothering on corruption and other illegalities to answer under his predecessor.
“It is our very strong position that for the new special adviser and co-ordinator of the presidential amnesty programme to succeed, he must sanitise the office and bring in some critical stakeholders to help him in the discharge of his duties.
“We are also using this medium to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for the sustenance and continuation of the presidential amnesty programme as his kind gesture has entrenched the hitherto fragile peace in the Niger Delta region.”
