It was all smiles in far-away USA and back here in Nigeria, as 21 beneficiaries of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, graduated in various courses at the Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The beneficiaries just completed their 4 year study in the university and all graduated with excellent results.

This great achievement not only shows the Federal Government’s commitment to the Human Capital Development of the region, but also displays the administration’s willingness to carry on with positive projects carried over from the last administration.

It may interest you to know that over 1000 students are still in schools all over the world, sent out by the last administration, but fully carried on by the current leadership of Brigadier General Paul Boroh. The Amnesty Programme that was setup to Disarm, Demobilize and Rehabilitate, Ex Agitators in the Niger Delta Region, also has provision for training, scholarships and empowerment of youth from impacted communities. This is one of such.

The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Brigadier General Paul Boroh (Rtd), Senate Committee Chairman on Niger Delta, Senator Paul Nwaboshi, House Committee Vice Chairman on Niger Delta, Hon Nasir Al Ahmed, Special Assistant to the President on National Economic Council, Mr Donald Benibo Wokoma, some other members of the National Assembly officials of the Presidential Amnesty Office and a representative from the Nigerian High Commission, were part of the powerful delegation that attended the graduation ceremony on Friday 12th May.

The graduating students thanked the President Buhari led Federal Government for continuing with the programme, and promised to bring back their new acquired knowledge to Nigeria and use it to positively affect their communities.
