Presidency okays verification of 30,000 Amnesty beneficiaries
The Presidency has sanctioned the decision by the Interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Office, Col. Milland Dikio (rtd), to audit the 30,000 ex-agitators captured under the programme in the last 11 years.
Consequently, Dikio has set up a 10-man committee of “PAP Think-Thank” with a mandate to enrich, monitor and propagate the new roadmap of the office to reposition and ensure that the new policies were loccalised.
A member of the Strategic Committee of PAP, Comrade Tonye Bobo, who confirmed the development yesterday during a call on members of the Federated Correspondents’ Chapel of the NUJ, Bayelsa State Council, clarified that the verification was not a witch-hunt, but a strategic way to verify those captured and the ones still left out of the project.
He added that the exercise had also received the backing of the ex-militant leaders in the region.
