General Boroh remains Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme

The attention of the Presidential Amnesty Office has been drawn to rumours that its Coordinator, Brigadier General Paul Boroh (Rtd) who is also the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta has been relieved of his duties. There is no iota of truth in these rumours as General Boroh remains at his duty posts carrying out the duties and tasks assigned him by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR who appointed him.

The mischievous rumors are calculated to distract General Boroh and divert the attention of the Presidential Amnesty Office from its mandate of sustainably reintegrating the Beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme, enhancing human capital development, building and ensuring peace in the Niger Delta to allow for investment and the development of the Region.

Indeed the Presidential Amnesty Office under General Boroh in collaboration with other strategic partners and government agencies has been so proactive and efficient that it has through constant dialogue and interaction with the major stakeholders, youth’s leaders and elders in the Niger Delta being able to stem the tide of oil installation vandalism in the Niger Delta. On occasions when there were threats of vandalism or resumption of militant activities, General Boroh relocated to the Niger Delta on peace building efforts and to assuage feelings, calm frayed nerves and push for dialogue.

The Presidential Amnesty Office once again reiterates that the Programme is an interventionist security project which should not be politicized. We need not emphasize that the wellbeing of the country’s economy rests on oil production and everything possible must be done to ensure we meet our production target. This precisely is what the rumour mongers do not Desire hence their vicious campaigns against the Programme and its Coordinator.

General Boroh appreciates all those who expressed concern about the misleading rumors and assures all that he remains committed to his assignment; he is not distracted by the rumors or the campaigns of calumny by detractors and influence peddlers.
