Leaders of ex-agitators in Edo State captured under the Niger Delta Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) have expressed their support for the Muhammadu Buhari administration, even as they vowed to expose pipeline vandals in the region.

They made this known when the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier General Paul Boroh (Rtd), had an emergency meeting with them in Benin City, the capital of Edo State.

The meeting, which had the sole focus of fostering peace and stability in the Niger Delta region, was well attended, and had leaders, State Coordinators and members from all the nine oil producing states.

Wabiye Idoniboyeobu, Media Consultant to Brigadier General Paul Boroh, described the meeting as a huge success. He said all the leaders of the ex-agitators present pledged their support for the current administration’s Agricultural Empowerment Programmes for beneficiaries.

One of the Leaders, Pastor Ruben Wilson, thanked General Boroh for his unbiased coordination of the Amnesty Programme, stating that under Boroh’s watch the Amnesty Programme has transformed from a political tool, to a well coordinated reintegration platform for repentant agitators of the Niger Delta region.

The ex-agitators, in a unanimous voice, resolved to protect the sovereignty of the country and expose anyone found vandalising oil and gas installations within their communities, citing its negative effect on the environment and the mindset of investors.

In his response, General Boroh lauded the ex-agitators for their patience and perseverance, promising Federal Government’s commitment to improving the lives of all beneficiaries and youths in the region at large.

It could be recalled that the Amnesty Programme has in recent times, focused on training and empowering beneficiaries in Agricultural activities. Just recently, about 200eEx-agitators have successfully been trained and Empowered on Enhanced Agriculture at the National Biotechnology Development Center, in Odi, Baylesa State, while some others have been empowered with starter packs, to start their own farms.
