Plans to end the amnesty program have been put on hold by the FG.
After hearing from Niger Delta stakeholders, the Federal Government reversed its decision to end the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

Maj. Gen. Barry Ndiomu (ret.) of PAP, the organization's interim administrator, made the announcement on Saturday, November 5.

In a statement released by PAP media consultant Donu Kogbara, Ndiomu praised the federal government for hearing the concerns of key regional stakeholders who were opposed to scrapping the plan.

He also noted that this shows how concerned President Muhammadu Buhari's administration is about problems in the Niger Delta.

In the announcement, it said;

The Federal Government has heard the concerns of Niger Delta people and, with our best interests at heart, has decided to shelve an unwanted termination agenda and transform PAP into a more sanitized, transparent, efficient, robust and sustainable entity.

“The decision was taken after the feelings of stakeholders and people of the region were communicated to the government and proves that the Buhari’s administration will not do anything to jeopardize the peace in the Niger Delta.

“We call on all stakeholders to sustain the peace in the region and help the new administration reform, refocus and reposition the programme for optimum performance.
