The leaders of the third phase Presidential Amnesty Programme in Niger Delta, (PAPND), led by General Onoriode Diyo and others have charged the Chief Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme PAP, Col. Diko Dixion Milland to commence the approved 30,000 slots beneficiary of the ex-agitators for peace to reign in the region.
Diyo and other leaders, who made this declaration during their leaders meeting held yesterday at Warri South LGA, in oil-rich Delta State, frowned at the Interim Coordinator Col. Dikio Milland for not paying attention to the welfare of ex-militants of the Niger Delta region.
The group reiterated that there is growing level of disaffection among the restive youths, especially the ex-agitators, warning that there is need to forestall a situation where those aggrieved may be compelled to return to the creeks to continue wanton destruction of oil installations in order to press home their demand for equity and justice for the downtrodden members of the region.
“They are not feeling comfortable with the system operation by the amnesty boss and they may return to the creek and attacks the oil pipe line of the state of the Niger Delta region before he will listen to us because we cannot die in silent when our demands are not being met,” he lamented.
While pledging their loyalty, the ex-agitators further impressed on the Coordinator Dikio Milland, the need to carry out verification of the 30,000 beneficiary slots of the Amnesty Programme already approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.
