The federal government, on Friday, November 20 said that its Presidential Amnesty Programme has been restructured to positively impact the socio-economic lives of the people of the Niger Delta region.
The interim administrator of the programme, Colonel Milland Dixon-Dikio (rtd.) disclosed this while briefing journalists shortly after a closed-door meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at Government House, Asaba.
The new amnesty boss assured the governor and Niger Deltans that issues concerning the Presidential Amnesty Programme will change henceforth with his coming on board.
He further assured that the issue concerning the payment of students fees abroad will be addressed in no time.
He called on Niger Deltans to air their grievances in a civil way and shun protests as a way of making their voices heard, saying it impacts negatively on the social economy of the region.
