PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Brigadier-General P. T. Boroh (retd.) as the coordinator of the Amnesty Programme for former Niger Delta militants.
Brig. Boroh, whose appointment takes immediate effect, is to take over the responsibilities of Kingsley Kuku, former special adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta who also doubled as coordinator of the Amnesty Programme.
The appointment of a new coordinator for the Amnesty Programme is expected to lead to the speedy resolution of recent hitches in its implementation such as the non-payment of outstanding allowances to ex-militants, according to Femi Adesina, special adviser to the President, Media and Publicity.
