Boroh’s appointment has averted crisis in N/Delta – Clark

FORMER Federal Commissioner for Information and South South leader, Chief Edwin Clark said yesterday that President Muhammadu Buhari's appointment of Brig-Gen. Paul Boroh, Rtd as Coordinator for the Amnesty Programme has averted a major breakdown of law and order that would have engulfed the Niger Delta region of the country.

In a letter to President Buhari, the Elder Statesman who hailed the president for the action, described the appointment as very timely and good for the people of the region, adding that the speed of his action was an indication that the president was in touch with the situation on ground.

Chief Clark had in a letter to President Buhari last week, urged him to as matter of urgency appoint a new Coordinator of the programme to avert crisis following the end of tenure of the immediate past coordinator, Kingsley Kuku.

The Ijaw leader's open letter of congratulation to President Buhari on his timely appointment of a Co-ordinator for the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme to avert crisis in the region, read in full, "I write to congratulate you, Mr. President, on your appointment, yesterday, of Brigadier-General Paul T. Boroh (rtd) as coordinator of the Niger Delta Amnesty Programme. The appointment was very timely, and has immediately lifted a threatening spectre of frustration, despondency and restiveness and with the news, last week, that beneficiaries of the Programme were facing destitution, either by being sent out of their training programmes, especially abroad, or denied their allowances in Nigeria.

"Being a principal participant in the long tortuous and dangerous process that led to the establishment of the Amnesty Programme and as a Father of the Region, I had, immediately upon hearing of gathering protesters, the cries of many Leaders of the area, written to Your Excellency a letter dated, July 23, 2015, to request the prompt appointment into the position, which you graciously announced yesterday.
