Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), has dismissed report of alleged conflict, between the National Security Adviser (NSA) and Interim Administrator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, over tenure extension.
The Head, Strategic Communication, ONSA, Mr Zakari Usman, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
Usman noted that the said news report on an online medium was falsely concocted to stoke confusion and mislead the public.
He said the NSA, retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno, had called on stakeholders and amnesty beneficiaries to continue to support ongoing reforms at the programme’s office.
According to him, the interim administrator of the presidential amnesty programme enjoys full support and confidence of the NSA.
“Therefore, stakeholders across the Niger Delta, public and media are advised to disregard and dismiss the report as a spurious work of journalism.
“The amnesty beneficiaries are equally encouraged to continue to support ongoing reforms of the programme,” he said. (NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
