NIGER DELTA IS GRADUALLY STABILIZING -BOROH

•Says over 5m lives have been transformed by the Amnesty programme

The Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has transformed no fewer than five million lives in the Niger Delta region.

The Coordinator of the programme, retired Brig.-Gen.Paul Boroh, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) in Abuja on Monday

Boroh, the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, said the region was now stabilising.

He said the region now had Niger Delta Development Commission, Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Works and Housing and Oil/Gas companies, fast tracking its development.

Boroh said amnesty programme worldwide had a limit because “it is a master piece of strategy to resolving militancy”.

He said that of Nigeria was established in 2009, but when I took over in July 2015, It was reviewed because it had helped in stabilising the region.

The coordinator, however, added that the 30,000 ex-agitators who gave up their arms to benefit from the programme were in three phases.

“When I came into office, I still met the load of 30,000 ex-agitator who are supposed to have exited the programme but were still in the programme.

“I came out with an exit strategy whereby every quarter about 5,000 will be exiting the programme as well as those graduating from the school both within and outside the Nigeria, with 4000 students graduating this year,”he said

Boroh said the amnesty office had also designed a 12 months programme to train and establish cluster farms to reintegrate 10,000 ex-agitators captured in its programme.

He added that its office had keyed into the Green Alternative initiative of Federal Government through strategic partnership with Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Anchor Borrowers programme.

According to him, the office has also collaborated with the nine oil producing states government, Ministry of Agriculture and National Biotechnology Resource Centre

Boroh, however urged everybody in Niger Delta to task themselves and take responsibilities of the region.
