Buhari Will Not Give Amnesty To New Militants - Paul Boroh

Senior Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Matters and Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (retd), has explainenment is not contemplating adding more Niger Delta militants into the amnesty programme.
Boroh, while speaking on a television programme yesterday, said his mandate was to reintegrate only 30,000 ex-agitators already captured.

His words: “Amnesty programme worldwide has a limit because it is a master piece strategy to resolve militancy. When that of Nigeria was established in 2009, it was supposed to exist for a particular time,” Boroh said.

“I do not intend to bring in more into the programme because that is not my mandate. My mandate is to reintegrate 30,000 ex-agitators into the programme that are already in the programme.

“But this number is bloated because communities affected during the conflicts, government is also taking care of them. Some of them are undergoing skills acquisition and training.

“I do not think that the Federal Government is going to have another amnesty programme, it is very expensive and presently, our economy is not in the right status. So, it should not be a permanent programme.

“It is better to gain an employment than wait for amnesty programme. Let us think of how to create jobs and develop the country. It is better to work than think of a programme that will give you a stipend every month.”
