FG to start paying ex-militants from Monday

The Federal Government has agreed to start paying ex-militants on Monday in line with the amnesty programme.

The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig-Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) made the information available to the media on Sunday.

This was contained in a statement released on Sunday by the Head of the Media and Communication Department of the office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Abuja, Mr. Piriye Keyaramo.

The coordinator, said President Buhari has a lot in store for the Niger Delta region and urged the ex-militants to put on hold plans to hold protests on Monday.

The statement read in part, “President Buhari attaches so much importance to the Amnesty Programme, which explains why the President in his inaugural address to the nation specifically promised to invest heavily in the projects, and programmes currently in place for the ex-agitators in the region.”

Boroh added that the Federal Government is putting plans in place to ensure youth development within the region.

“President Muhammandu Buhari, is already putting together a youth development and empowerment package that would directly impact the ex-agitators and other youths in the region,” he said.
