The Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) has lauded President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua over the success of the Federal Governmentâ€™s Amnesty for militants in the Niger-Delta.
The party, which is a member of the Government of National Unity (GNU), said in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Ben Onyechere that â€œbeing a member of the Government of National Unity, the Progressive Peoples Alliance commends the Federal Government led by President Yarâ€™Adua on the success of its amnesty for militants in the Niger Delta region.
â€œIt should be noted that politics is not always about condemning a rival party, but also make commendations when there is the need to so do.
â€œThe success of the amnesty programme will definitely bring sanity and stability to the oil-rich Niger Delta, and stability in the Niger Delta means stability in the whole nation.
â€œAs a party, the PPA wants to appeal to the Federal Government to ensure that the post-amnesty programme of developing the Niger Delta is faithfully carried out so that the ugly past of militancy and disruption of the economic life wire of the nation is never revisited,â€ he said.
