Tinubu appoints Dennis Otuaro as administrator of amnesty programme

President Bola Tinubu has appointed Dennis Otuaro as
administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).

 

Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media and
publicity, said in a statement that “Otuaro holds a PhD in Comparative Politics
& Development Studies; an MSc in Public Administration, and a BSc in
Education”.

 

“He had previously served as a top-level executive of the
Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) with a surfeit of experience across
multiple sectors, including infrastructure development, security, environmental
remediation, as well as oil and gas,” the statement adds.

 

“The President anticipates that the new administrator will
bring his requisite experience and know-how to this role to revamp the Amnesty
Programme and advance the realization of its founding purpose and vision.”

 

In 2009, Umaru Yar’Adua, a former president, established the
Niger Delta amnesty programme to tackle youth restiveness, destruction of crude
oil pipelines, oil theft, and insecurity in the region.

 

The  programme also
seeks to rehabilitate and assimilate ex-militants into the society after they
have undergone skills and vocational training.
