A group, Itsekiri National Development Initiative, has passed a vote of confidence on the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Matters/Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, General Paul Boroh (retd), over the prudent management of the amnesty funds and his resolve in ensuring that the programme benefits all those concerned, irrespective of ethnic nationalities in the Niger Delta region.
The group also commended the Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, for setting up a 16-man committee to interface with the Federal Government with a view to strengthening the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
Mr Dennis Mene, Chairman of Itsekiri National Development Initiative, in a statement, said all those calling for the removal of Boroh as coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme were enemies of Niger Delta development, who wish to continue in the status quo of sharing funds meant for the development of the region.
He advised Boroh not to be distracted by the voice of enemies within, adding that he should as a matter of urgency deploy the balance of those in the programme, especially those that have been there since 2012 to their various study centres and higher institutions in the Niger Delta.
