President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday appointed Brigadier-General P.T. Boroh (rtd.) as the Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme for former Niger Delta militants.

A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that Brig. Boroh’s appointment takes immediate effect.

Boroh is taking over the responsibilities of the former Special Adviser to President Jonathan on Niger Delta who also doubled as Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme.

The appointment of a new Coordinator for the Amnesty Programme, the statement said, is to lead to the speedy resolution of recent hitches in its implementation such as the non-payment of outstanding allowances to ex-militants.
