Federal Government and Niger Delta leaders agree to end Amnesty programme soon



Stakeholders in the Niger Delta have agreed that the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) should end after the integration of all the beneficiaries of the scheme.

Traditional rulers, political leaders and past and present officers of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) and the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide met with the Administrator of PAP, Col. Milland Dixion Dikio (retd), in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

Some of the leaders urged the Federal Government to ensure that the programme was given the needed financial support to execute its reintegration phase.

They maintained that the Federal Government should achieve all conceptualised benefits for PAP before winding it down.
