Amnesty: Urhobo youths back Dokubo’s appointment



Prof. Dokubo


WARRI-Youths from Urhobo oil and gas producing communities in Delta state, have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing Professor Charles Dokubo as Special Adviser on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

In a statement issued by Mr. Godbless  Urhukpeoghene, on behalf of the youths at a meeting on Wednesday at Ughelli, said no right thinking Ijaw man would protest against the appointment of  Professor Charles Dokubo who is an Ijaw man from Rivers State, in Niger Delta.

”  other tribes are not protesting against the appointment of Professor Dokubo, despite since the inception of presidential Amnesty Programme  the Ijaws had been the Coordinator and SA on Niger Delta, therefore, the Ijaws should support Professor Dokubo, and also commend President Buhari for appointing another Ijaw person for the position”.

The Urhobo youths also condemned the attempt by Adaka  Boro  Freedom Fighters to malign the good image and reputation of an Urhobo son, Kesiena Mowarin over an appointment to Head the Reintegration Department of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

” from all available records, Kesiena Mowarin has been diligent, committed and contributing immensely and positively to the improvement of the Amnesty programme, and he would continue to support the development of Niger Delta region”.
