Interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Major General Barry Ndiomu (rtd), has made a case for the recruitment of ex-agitators as policemen and Customs officers.
Since he took over as Interim Administrator, Ndiomu has focused on creating platforms that can gainfully employ ex-agitators who have gone through training under the Amnesty Programme
Since he took over as Interim Administrator, Ndiomu has focused on creating platforms that can gainfully employ ex-agitators who have gone through training under the Amnesty Programme.
PAP, in a statement by Special Assistant on Media to the Interim Administrator, Mr Thomas Peretu, noted that the Programme was not designed to continue in perpetuity
Since he took charge in September, the PAP boss has visited several ministries, departments and agencies (MDA), including security formations, where he has had fruitful conversations on how ex-agitators under the Amnesty Programme could be engaged in a bid to helping them take full ownership of their lives.
Earlier this month, Ndiomu paid courtesy call on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Alkali Baba Usman, at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, where he solicited the support of the Police High Command in the recruitment of ex-agitators to its rank and file as well as officers’ corps.
