  /   in Crime Alert 12:29 am   /   Comments

Amnesty -cartoon1

I don’t see any reason why the Federal Government should stop the Amnesty Programme. In fact, I advise the Federal Government not to stop the Amnesty Programme because if you look at the past and the present, the difference is very clear in terms of peace in the Niger Delta and oil exploration, so they should not stop it because it has been of great benefit to the ex-agitators and the Federal Government.

*File: Police

The debate as to what form the Constitution review should take has been very intensive. Some believe that it should be sovereign while some say it should not. Some even believe that such exercise was not necessary or that the matter should be left with the National Assembly as provided for in the present Constitution. While the position of those calling for a sovereign conference is not yet clearly defined, they probably envisage that the outcome of such conference should not be subjected to interference by anybody as was the position in the past.
