THE Delta State Chairman, Phase 2 Ex-militants of the Amnesty Programme, Kingsley Muturu, has vowed that ex-militants were ready for those he called “detractors of the smooth running of the Amnesty Programme.”
Muturu stated this in Warri, Delta State, against the backdrop of the call by a group African Anti-Corruption Network, AACN , on a radio programme, demanding the immediate sack of the Chairman of the Amnesty Programme, Brig-General Paul Boroh (retd), over allegations of corruption.
He said the call was suspicious, as there were was no basis for removing a man whose efforts were seen to have been designed to sail the programme to a successful end.
He challenged the group to prove their allegations, saying they were out to cause distraction and accused it of being on instrument in the hands of those who had been distracting the smooth running of the programme right from the time of Kingsley Kuku.
The ex-militant leader noted that beneficiaries of the programme had passed a vote of confidence on Boroh as a result of his “determination to move the programme to a successful conclusion after the mandate given him by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
