Tony Bobo led-group claims leadership of third phase ex-agitators, passes vote of confidence on Ndiomu

Yenagoa—The Tonye Bobo leadership faction of the third Phase ex-agitators of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has said it is the real national leadership of the Third Phase ex-agitators forum, contrary to claims by one Julius Joseph and his group.

The faction in a statement signed by its leader, Tonye Bobo on Thursday described Julius Joseph as a conflicted ex-agitator, adding that he and his group is driven by selfishness to reap where they did not sow.

Bobo accused Joseph of trying hard to stop the progress of the Amnesty Programme and fighting every Interim Administrator since its inception.

Bobo described Joseph as a dubious character and alleged that he has once been suspended from the Programme in 2019 on some financial allegations.

He, therefore, called on Barry Ndiomu to carry out a verification exercise for the Third Phase forum to ascertain the true ex-agitators of the programme.

The faction also passed a vote of confidence on Ndiomu and commended him for “his genuine commitment and doggedness in actualizing the cardinal objectives of the programme.”

The faction further lauded Ndiomu and described him as a round peg in a round hole, noting that he is already addressing the current needs and challenges of the programme.

“We were not surprised with the pragmatic initiatives brought by the new PAP boss to the programme and for this, we are promising to work side by side with him in his vision.”

The factional group however called on Ndiomu not to be distracted by Julius Joseph and his group but carry on with his plans for the programme.

He said, “We call on  Major General Ndiomu (retd) not to be distracted by the disgruntled and self-seeking ex-agitators whose stock in trade is to criticize any successor who does not dance to their whims and caprices and implore him to carry on his good plans for the programme and the region.”

They also urged Ndiomu to disregard the 14-day ultimatum given by Julius Joseph and his group to occupy the office of the programme in Abuja.
