President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed a new Coordinator for the Amnesty Programme for former Niger Delta militants. He is Brigadier-General P.T. Boroh (rtd.)
This was disclosed on Tuesday by Femi Adesina, the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
His statement reads:
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Brigadier-General P.T. Boroh (rtd.) as the Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme for former Niger Delta militants.
Brig. Boroh, whose appointment takes immediate effect, is to take over the responsibilities of the former Special Adviser to President Jonathan on Niger Delta who also doubled as Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme.
The appointment of a new Coordinator for the Amnesty Programme is expected to lead to the speedy resolution of recent hitches in its implementation such as the non-payment of outstanding allowances to ex-militants.
