Ex-militants pledge to make region conducive for oil companies – Boroh
6 Mar 2017
Author:
Country: Nigeria

The Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh says ex-militants are determined to make the Niger Delta region conducive for multinational oil companies to operate.

Boroh told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the amnesty programme has had a great impact on the ex-militants with their only challenge being the boycott of the area by multinational companies.

“The amnesty programme has achieved great things because of the synergy between the various ministries and the ex-agitators.

“The only complaint they had was that the multinational oil companies operating in the region have all left and they are not happy about it.

“What can they do for them to return?.

“So I told them their attitude would make a difference, and they are all happy now; they say they will behave well and make the place very conducive for the oil companies to operate.

“So they are all very happy to receive the operational oil companies back to the Niger Delta.

“Well over 5000 have been engaged and it’s an ongoing process.’’

Boroh appealed to the youths of the region to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the Federal Government’s agriculture project.

He said the Presidential Amnesty Office was already training beneficiaries of the programme in technology-based agricultural methods.

He said the office was willing to expand the programme to accommodate other youths in the region.
