Ndiomu’s efforts to absorb N’Delta ex-agitators into MDAs, private companies yielding result—Com’tee

Abuja—The Ex-agitators Peace and Conflict Resolution Committee has lauded the Interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Major General Tariye Ndiomu (rtd) for his commitment towards the actualization of the core mandate of the programme.

The Committee in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Excel Yerindideke Toriomo stated that Ndiomu’s courtesy visit to various heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) including relevant private organisations for partnership will benefit all ex-agitators.

The statement reads in part: “We are particularly elated by the Interim Administrator’s recent visit to the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to remind him of an earlier presidential directive to absorb over 350 graduates of the Amnesty program into the federal civil service.

“Supervised by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), the Amnesty program was initiated for us to lay down our arms for extensive training and retraining and be reintegrated to become more productive members of society.

“This initiative has so far brought peace to the Niger Delta region, enabled International Oil Companies to do their business smoothly, and boosted the oil revenue of Nigeria.”

The Committee which further expressed satisfaction that Ndiomu’s continuous engagements to train and absorb all ex-agitators to public and private organisations are already paying off averred that they’ll continue to push for peaceful dialogue to sustain a cordial relationship between ex-agitators and the Amnesty office.

They urged all ex-agitators and Niger Deltans to support the Amnesty program to succeed.
