‘Amnesty programme should go beyond stipends’

‘Amnesty programme should go beyond stipends’: Stakeholders from  Niger Delta have said the Presidential Amnesty Programme for the region should go beyond  payment of stipends to repentant militants.

According to them, the amnesty programme, which began in 2009, was focused on stipend payment until  Prof Charles Dokubo took over as  Coordinator of the programme.

A statement on Tuesday by Dokubo’s media aide, Murphy Ganagana, said Niger Delta stakeholders expressed this views during a meeting with Dokubo in Abuja on Tuesday.

According to him, the stakeholders comprised elders, opinion leaders and professionals drawn from  Niger Delta states.
