BEVERLY HILLS, March 04, (THEWILL) – The Ijaw Youth Congress, IYC, and some former Niger Delta militant commanders on Thursday debunked rumours making the rounds that the Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) diverted welfare packages meant for ex-militants.

Speaking through its President, Comrade Udenz Eradiri, the IYC said the allegations of corrupt practices against the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta was a ploy by some failed governorship candidates interested in hijacking the Amnesty Office and turning it into a cash cow.

Eradiri noted that though the ''identity of the politicians involved in the plot to discredit and remove Boroh are known, we stand by the position of the ex-militant leaders.''

The ex-militant leaders under the aegis of Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiatives, LPCDI-led by Pastor Reuben Wilson noted that the Boroh-led Amnesty Implementation Committee had remained focused and incorruptible in the handling of the welfare issues meant for ex-militant youths in the region.

“We appeal therefore to all greedy and selfish politicians to please hands off that office and allow Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh to continue with the good and selfless work he is doing. And we will like to commend President Muhammadu Buhari for the good work he is doing by extending the Amnesty program,” Wilson stated.
