The agitators, under the `Third Phase Presidential Amnesty Programme’, made the pledge at an enlarged meeting of stakeholders.
Mr Tonye Bobo, leader of the Third Phase Presidential Amnesty Programme and member of the Special Committee of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) made the pledge.
“We are already getting it right. As peace Ambassadors, we have to change the narrative in the Niger Delta.
“We want the public to know that Niger Delta is now a region where people can do business without any molestation,” he stated.
According to him, there is talk toward sustainable peace in the area ongoing with the Interim Administrator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Col. Milland Dikio, who he described as an upright man and one with the interest of the people at heart.
He spoke of the need to support Dikio so that he would be able to achieve the set objectives for the people.
“Today’s meeting is very powerful, looking at the calibre of persons present.
“Some of the stakeholders that could not make it to the meeting sent a word of support and appreciation for the effort we are making for the needful to be done in the office,” he said.
The spokesman for the group, Mr Godstime Ogidigba, said one of the decisions taken during the meeting was the confirmation of the executive committee led by Bobo for two years, after which election of the group’s leadership would be conducted.
He also said it was decided that the chairmanship position would be rotational. (NAN)
