Protesting ex-Agitators Make U-turn, Apologise To Amnesty Programme Boss



Interim Administrator of PAP, Maj. Gen. Barry Tariye Ndiomu
A group of Niger Delta ex-agitators who were at the national assembly in protest has made U-turn, apologizing to the Interim Administrator of PAP, Maj. Gen. Barry Tariye Ndiomu for their unconscionable conduct. 
Addressing the protest at the conference hall of the presidential amnesty programme, Ndiomu, cautioned the protesters against action inimical to the wheel of progress, saying that such actions will only discourage and retard the wheel of progress.
He explained that he is making a deliberate effort to ensure that the ex-agitators live a more fruitful and purposeful life through robust investment opportunities.
“It is sad”, he said, that the ex-agitators prefer to depend on a monthly handout.
He however, advised them to be patient as efforts are being made to address their grievances.
General Ndiomu added that he is working assiduously to effect a more sustainable mode of income generation for them in the long term.
Aso Tambou, one of the leaders of the Phase 2 group, who also participated in the protest, apologised profusely for their misconduct. He attributed their action to the misinformation peddle by some of their colleagues.
Tambou noted that they never knew that the Interim Administrator has laudable plans in the pipeline to uplift their standard of living in the long term. He observed that there is a  communication gap between the PAP and the ex-agitators that needed to  be bridged. This, he noted, is largely responsible for their action.
They promised to show more understanding and  care in their actions going forward. Others who  spoke  equally  apologised to the  Interim Administrator for their ineffectual act of indiscretion. The leaders declared that they will pass on the good news to their followers and associates in the creeks.
