    This is what happens when you enable your people!
    They get to actualize their potentials.
    Crime rates go down.
    The importance of good governance can’t be over emphasized.
    Availability of good schools, jobs, basic social amenities, skills acquisition centers, easy access to loans,
    Good job my people. You are no longer another statistics!

    The statement said that the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, and the Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his commitment to human capital development in the Niger Delta. I guess if this statement you made has any iota of truth in it we would not be having renewed agitations in the Niger Delta ain’t it Mr Amnesty coordinator.

      Who will give them the jobs when they get back? Will the Buhari-led govt allow them harness the opportunities available?
