Former Niger Delta agitators have assured that they will continue to do everything possible to ensure that the peace building process in the Niger Delta initiated by the federal government is sustained.
They made this known in Port Harcourt recently when the PresidentialAmnesty Office toured some of the states in the region to inspect and empower ex-agitators after their mandatory training periods aimed at building them into entrepreneurs and employers of labours.
Speaking during the empowerment ceremony in Okrika, Rivers State, the beneficiaries of the PAP Programme who were presented with modern fish farms and farmlands, super markets and shops by the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh (retd) said they were short of words to express how delightful they were.
One of the PAP beneficiaries, Engr. Fadum Napoleon Biralo commended the federal government for putting the region as one of its developmental priorities through the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
He pledged to repay the faith reposed on him by expanding his fishfarming business beyond Rivers State.
