Tompolo, a former leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, has hailed Buhari for appointing Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh as the new head of the Presidential Amnesty Program. He said, “It gives me joy for
the President to appoint a high-ranking retired military gentleman to coordinate the program, rather than have any of the political jobbers, who had advertised themselves in very negative forms in order to be appointed.”
Also, frontline ex-militant leaders from the states of the Niger Delta have commended Buhari for the appointment. They said the choice was apt. The former agitators, under the aegis of the Leadership, Peace and Cultural Development Initiative, led by Pastor Reuben Wilson, said that the choice of Boroh was commendable. .
Wilson said though the appointment was delayed, nevertheless, it would calm frayed nerves among beneficiaries of the program….. they admonished Buhari to go slower so dt haters can stop calling him “baba go slow” and start calling him “snail baba”…..
