Names Dokubo new co-ordinator  

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the National Security Adviser (NSA) to carry out a full investigation into the activities of the presidential amnesty programme from 2015 to date.

Buhari’s directive came as he announced the approval for the appointment of Prof. Charles Quaker Dokubo as the new co-ordinator of the amnesty programme for former Niger Delta militants.

A statement signed yesterday by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said Dokubo replaces Brig.-Gen. Paul Boro (rtd) who, until his sack, co-ordinated the programme.

Specifically, the President asked the NSA to investigate allegation of financial impropriety and other acts that are allegedly detrimental to the objectives of the presidential amnesty programme under the leadership of Boro.

Dokubo is currently Director of Research and Studies at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA). He holds a Ph.D. in Strategic Studies from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom (UK) and hails from Abonema in Akuku-Toru Local Council of Rivers State.‎
