Tompolo praises Pres. Buhari on Amnesty Programme boss' appointment.

Leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Government Ekpemupolo, popularly called Tompolo, has commended President Buhari for appointing Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh (retd.) as the new coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

In a statement he released yesterday July 29th, Tompolo said he was happy that the position was not handed to a political jobber ..


"It could be recalled that I called a meeting of ex-agitators, leaders and other stakeholders in the Niger Delta last week as a result of the pressure on me to intervene in the seemingly troubled Amnesty Programme, due to the non-payment of the stipends and allowances to beneficiaries for months now. And so, it gives me joy for the President to appoint a high-ranking retired military gentleman to coordinate the programme rather than any of the political jobbers, who had advertised themselves in very negative forms in order to be appointed.”he said
