He also called on the Presidential Amnesty Office to urgently pay whatever was due the ex-agitators in the spirit of equity and FairPlay.

The governor’s plea came amidst plans by the ex-militants to protest the non-payment of their stipends by the Federal Government.

A statement issued on Sunday in Yenagoa by the State Commissioner for Information, Jonathan Obuebite, quoted Dickson as advising all stakeholders in the Niger Delta struggle to “eschew violence and live in peace as issues concerning their welfare will be soon be addressed by the Federal Government.”
