Urhobo Ex-Militant Leaders Call On President Tinubu To Appoint Deltan As PAP Coordinator





The Coalition of Urhobo Ex-militant Leaders (CUEL) urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to appoint a coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) from Delta State in the interest of equity and fairness towards beneficiaries in the Niger Delta region.

The group’s call comes in response to what they perceive as unfair treatment towards the state, which plays a crucial role in the success of the amnesty programme and maintaining peace in the region.

CUEL’s president, Self-styled General H.M. Ebirie, emphasized the need for President Tinubu to rectify this issue by appointing a candidate from Delta to oversee the affairs of the programme.

He said: “It is obvious that from the inception of the Presidential Amnesty Programme till now, no Deltan has been appointed to head the programme despite the major roles the state has been playing towards the success of the programme and ultimate peace in the region.

“This time around, we are appealing to Mr. President to consider a Deltan to lead the programme for the sake of equity and fairness. We feel marginalized in this issue and we, Deltans, will never accept it again. Mr. President should correct the anomaly.

“Delta State is very rich in gas and oil resources and we have all it takes to be given the leadership position of the programme, and which programme we’re doing all we could to make it a success.

“We believe Mr. President will do the right thing as we know he’s a listening leader”.
