He is the right person to continue the projects he started in different areas of the Niger Delta for the reintegration of the ex-agitators and the impacted communities resulting from the Niger Delta struggle.
”Therefore, the appointment of a different Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, will be time-wasting and a dangerous ploy, simply because it will take the new Coordinator of the PAP another process of learning about the activities in the Amnesty Office, also, he will likely bring his workforce or work-teams, and this will lead to a retrogressive agenda for the Office of the Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
”However, the reinstatement of Prof. Charles Dokubo to the Presidential Amnesty Office will only maintain the most needed continuity of his projects in the Office.
The ex-militant called on President Muhammadu Buhari to reinstate Professor Dokubo, for progress and continuity which they said would help bring about the success of the Amnesty Programme.
