The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Niger Delta, Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) has appealed to former militants to exercise patience with the Federal Government over the delay in the payment of their outstanding allowances.
Speaking yesterday, the Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, Coordinator blamed the delay on
non-receipt of budgetary allocation by the amnesty office.
Boroh, however, assured that his office was working round the clock to ensure the release of all outstanding allocations, stressing that the Federal Government is aware of the pains the former agitators are going through.
“I want to assure the ex-militants under the programme that arrangements are being made to fast-track the payment of their stipends as soon as the amnesty office receives its allocation,” he said.
