FG Offers Employment To 350 Niger Delta Ex-Agitators
The Federal Government has offered employment to 350 ex-agitators from the Niger Delta region, who graduated from various tertiary institutions across the world.
The Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), retired Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh, made this known when he fielded questions from State House correspondents in Abuja on Friday.
Boroh, who is the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, said the affected ex-agitators had already been posted to various federal ministries awaiting approval of the 2018 appropriation bill by the National Assembly.
The federal government ensured that about 350 of them have been employed in the various ministries in the country.
“We are only waiting for appropriation so that once they report to their various ministries they will start earning their salaries,’’
He added that the 350 graduates were among the about 30,000 ex-agitators sponsored for various studies abroad by the amnesty office.
