Calling on all ex-militants in the Niger Delta region to calm down for a new dawn in the administration of the amnesty programme Akpodoro stated that the group was privy to painstaking efforts being made by Mr Boroh “to set the ball rolling” as he has been doing everything possible for early payment of stipends to genuine benefiaries of the program.

According to the Urhobo-born ex-agitator, the group has implicit confidence in Boroh for adequate response to the plight of ex-militants but was quick to add that the FG needs a peaceful environment to fulfil it’s promises to the people of  the region adding that ‎th amnesty office needs the support of all and sundry to succeed in its onerous task.of developing the region.

Akpodoro said the Coordinator who was deservedly ‎assigned to manage the destiny of the region should be allowed to succeed while he brings his wealth of experience to bear in the task of assuaging the pains of the people.

The coalition further stated that it was privy to the prevailing impediments to the payment of stipends to ex-agitators but expressed satisfaction in the desire of the FG to put a smile on the faces of the beneficiaries noting that gone were the days of profiteering and racketeering in the management of that office stressing that more time was needed for the Boroh-led office to perfect ‎it’s works.

Most important in this regard according to Akpodoro was the cooperation and understanding of the people noting that the Buhari presidency was ready to bring change to bear in the region as he urge the youth population to eschew damaging rumours capable of causing unsavoury situation.
