Co-ordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier- General Paul Boroh (retd), has said that he has pardoned the 261 ex-agitators who petitioned the Presidency against him and warned them to stop playing politics with national interest.
Reacting to a public apology by delegates of the John Togo Camp that had written a petition against him, General Boroh said that misinformation can cause disaffection in society and urged them not to play politics with the collective interests of the country.
He said: “The Presidential Amnesty Programme is doing well and is focused on its mandate of fully reintegrating all the 30,000 persons who embraced the amnesty.
“‘We have been fair to all, including impacted communities, whose youth have been given over 3,000 scholarship to study locally and internationally. “The programme is meeting its mandate and is winding down and new intakes are not contemplated.”
