Niger Delta ex-militants oppose calls for Ndiomu’s sack as PAP administrator

Port Harcourt—A group of former militants in the Niger Delta region have kicked against calls for the sack of the interim administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Major General Barry Ndiomu (rtd).

The Leadership News reports that the former agitators from seven states in the Niger Delta region, described the calls for Ndiomu’s sack as “baseless and unfounded”, and passed a vote of confidence on him.

Addressing a press conference in Port Harcourt yesterday, spokesman of the ex-agitators who are also PAP beneficiaries, Datonye Ebiye, accused some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State of being behind the calls.

Ebiye said calls for the removal of Ndiomu lack merit, and were being met with overwhelming support and condemnation from a vast majority of Niger Deltans who recognise and appreciate Ndiomu’s remarkable contributions to the Niger Delta region.

He said: “It is important to note that these calls for his removal are not only unfounded but also fail to acknowledge the immense progress and transformative changes that have been achieved under retired Gen. Ndiomu’s leadership.

“Ndiomu has so far displayed unwavering commitment, integrity, and a deep understanding of the challenges faced by the Niger Delta communities.

“His tireless efforts have yielded tangible results and have positively impacted the lives of numerous individuals”

The spokesman of the ex-agitators maintained that all the patriotic Niger Deltans who continue to support Ndiomu understand the significant strides that had been made under his leadership, adding that his ability to foster peace, promote reconciliation, and drive socioeconomic development in the Niger Delta region had earned him overwhelming accolades and recognition.
