Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator, Amnesty Programme, Prof. Charles Dokubo has promised to work for President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the Niger Delta, in 2019.
“Mr President wants to win in our region and the entire country. I need your support in this regard. It was the All Progressive Congress that gave me this position and whatever I can do to support the party and make it win, I will do”, he remarked.
Also, leaders of various camps under Phase One of the Presidential Amnesty Programme expressed willingness to work towards Buhari’s re-election.
‘General’ Pastor Reuben, chairman of the forum of Phase One leaders of ex-agitators, stated this yesterday, after a meeting at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in Abuja, with over 30 Phase One leaders of Niger Delta ex-agitators in attendance. There, Dokubo solicited their support to ensure Buhari’s re-election in the forthcoming election.
Reacting to Dokubo’s appeal, Reuben said members of his forum were ready to work with him, for enhanced development in the region. “As far as Amnesty is concerned, we will work with Prof. Dokubo; as we are working with him directly. When it comes to the 2019 elections, it’s God that gives power. When it gets to that point, God will decide that and the people…” (The Sun)
