The Federal Government had offered employment to 350 Niger Delta ex-agitators who graduated from various tertiary institutions across the world. The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig. Gen. Paul Boroh (retd.) confirmed.
He said the 350 graduates were among the about 30,000 ex-agitators sponsored for various studies abroad by the amnesty office.
Boroh disclosed this in an interview with the State House correspondents after attending a meeting of the Niger Delta Inter-Ministerial Committee presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday.
He said the ex-agitators from Niger Delta
who benefited from the job opportunities had already been posted to various federal ministries awaiting approval of the 2018 Appropriation Bill by the National Assembly.
