Third Phase delegates of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) have commended the current PAP leadership over the strategic coordination of its cooperative and scholarship schemes.

The delegates spoke at an interactive meeting with stakeholders and PAP leadership on Monday in Benin, Edo.

The National President of PAP Third Phase delegates, Elaye Slaboh, gave the commendation on behalf of other delegates.

Slaboh said that the communication style of the PAP Interim Administrator, Maj. – Gen. Barry Ndiomu, had arrested brewing tensions in the region.

“We are very happy with the interim administrator; with the way he is handling the programme, if he continues in that manner, then the best is yet to come,” he said.

Slaboh, while urging the PAP leadership to capture more third phase delegates in the cooperative and scholarship schemes, charged the delegates to support Ndiomu for him to do more.

Earlier, Ndiomu represented by Wilfred Musa, Head of Reintegration in the Amnesty Office, said that the whole essence of the interactive meeting was to bring members of the third phase up to speed with the vision and mission of the current PAP leadership.

Ndiomu called for an overhaul of questionable attitudes among delegates, saying that, a good number of delegates could not hold jobs because of their attitudes.

The PAP leadership, however, expressed worries over poor performance of delegates under its scholarship scheme across various higher institutions of learning.

He added that, rather than engaging in serious reading culture, they engaged in frivolous petitions against the PAP leadership.

Ndiomu frowned at the shoddy performance of some delegates in their recent examinations, where some of them were dropped.

To raise the standards, he said PAP had resolved to prioritise admission for delegates into any university of their choice, adding that it would no longer be business as usual.

Ndiomu said they could not be involved in wasteful venture with poor standards, as they were only ready to support those who were willing to be trained within PAP.

According to him, the third phase leaders of the programme will take up the responsibility of projecting the workings of the amnesty programme in their domains.

Ndiomu further commended the PAP delegates for maintaining high level of decorum especially at various interactive meetings held in Rivers, Calabar and Abuja.

He urged them to shun divisive tendencies capable of inciting disunity.

“As leaders, you should rise up and shoot down side talks– frivolous petitions aimed at bringing down the amnesty programme set out to ensure empowerment for the Niger Delta region,” he said. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
