Special adviser to the President on Niger Delta and coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof Charles Dokubo, has called on the people of Niger Delta and beneficiaries of the PAP to ignore text messages in circulation by syndicates parading themselves as vendors engaged by the office to inviting unsuspected Amnesty beneficiaries for training in Owerri, Imo State on August 19.
In a statement signed by special assistant, Media, Morphy Ganagana, the office called on all beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme to ignore such messages and should not fall prey to scammers believed to be soliciting funds from them in respect to the said training.
In the state, Mr Ganagana said already “individuals, one of which was simply identified as Mr Franklin have also been soliciting for funds ranging from N50, 000 to N100, 000 for documentation of prospective trainees.
“Reports indicated that some Niger Delta youths, including beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme may have fallen prey to the criminal antics of these individuals.
“The Presidential Amnesty Office wishes to state that neither its Vocational Training Unit nor the Post Training Engagement Unit has scheduled training or refresher programme for Owerri, Imo State, on August 19, 2018, or any other date.”
In the same vein, the Presidential Amnesty Office hereby alerts members of the public on a fake Facebook profile purportedly operated by the special adviser to the President on Niger Delta and coordinator, Amnesty Programme, Prof Charles Dokubo.
“The Facebook Account which bears Hon. Charles Dokubo and has Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs as his address, is used in luring undiscerning members of the public into a chat which culminates into the introduction of victims to the purchase of a “Contractor’s Registration Form” at a fee of N250, 000 for award of contracts for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).”
The Amnesty office reiterates that Prof Charles Dokubo does not have, and has not operated a private Facebook Account since his appointment as special adviser to the President on Niger Delta and coordinator, Amnesty Programme. He has zero tolerance for corruption and does not request or receive money from contractors for award of contracts.
