He said President Muhammadu Buhari was determined to turn around the situation in the Niger Delta through aggressive human capital and infrastructural development. “We are working towards a situation where beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme would be empowered with the necessary tools to start business immediately they complete training. That way, they will not wait longer than necessary after training to engage in productive ventures and then fend for themselves”.
