The Presidency has urged Niger Delta Avengers and other militant groups in the coastal region to leave the creeks and enlist in the amnesty programme for a better future.

Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier-General, Paul Boroh (rtd), made the appeal in Abuja on Friday while welcoming 4 ex-agitators from the region who had successfully trained in electrical transformer repairs, maintenance and establishment by Brainbox Matrix Services Limited, a vendor to the amnesty office.

The special adviser who was greatly excited to see the former freedom fighters become qualified electrical engineers stated that the intention of president Muhammadu Buhari was to stabilize the Niger Delta region through human capacity development as well as infrastructural development.
