Popular Niger Delta rights activist Comrade Ozobo Austin who doubled as the National President of the Ijaw People’s Development Initiative, IPDI on Thursday 9th February 2023, said the Interim Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, General Barry Ndiomu must resign his appointment except he is willing to lift the suspension of scholarship scheme, recall suspended students and improve upon the reintegration phase of the programme.
Ozobo, also said the approval of the 775 ex-agitators with BVN challenges for payment is just one of the several demands the group made in their previous publications.
He also accused Ndiomu of coming into office with the mindset to fight his people, added that until Ndiomu showed sincerity to serve his people he would quit his appointment.
He further asserted that there was nothing extraordinary about the approval of 775 ex-agitators whose stipends were withheld for months, stressing that he only solved a problem he created by himself.
