Ijaw Group Wants Buhari to Probe General Boroh, Amnesty FundsFeatured, Latest News, News Thursday, May 26th, 2016
Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, and Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Brigadier General Paul Boroh, has come under attack with the calls for his immediate removal and extensive probe of the amnesty programme under his leadership.
The Ijaw Collectives, a group of Niger Delta Environmental Activists made the call in a Statement issued Wednesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The group said it has observed that the gains recorded in the area of Peace and Stability over the past few years, particularly since the intervention of Late President Umar Musa Yar’adua, which saw an enduring peace retuned to the region, have virtually become completely eroded since General Boroh took over as the Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty programme.
As genuine Stakeholders in the region, we have observed that the current state of things in the region, is not only rather assuming a disturbing level but a clear indictment on the choice of General Paul Boroh for that office, and a wake-up call for President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate the matter and take immediate action.
There is no doubt that the gross incompetence of General Boroh as the Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme have resulted into the recent resurgence of Militant activities in the Niger Delta region, leading to a monumental pollution of our environments and a colossal loss of revenue for our dear nation.
The group also claimed that it has it on good authority, that the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, have been inciting some former militant leaders, and the latest gang known as the Niger Delta Avengers, for personal gains, at the detriment of the collective interest of the region, and the Nation at large.
