The C’River State Governor has pledged to continue to offer Amnesty and training to genuine Agitators or Militants when the need arises.
The Deputy Governor, Professor Ivara Ejemot Esu made the pledge at the flag off of phase two training of beneficiaries of the Amnesty Programme of the State Government held at the U.J Esuene Sports Stadium, Calabar.
Professor Esu remarked that, the event marks the beginning of the Second phase of Amnesty Programme for this batch of Beneficiaries adding that, the significance is the fact that, the ex-militants are to undergo training in various skills that will equip them for the future.
He expressed the hope that, the successful completion of the training will see the end of militancy in the State, while suing for the cooperation of everyone to achieve the much-desired success in this important undertaking which will usher in peace and economic enhancement of our youths.
The Deputy Governor enjoined all trainees and beneficiaries, of the training programme to take advantage of the programme to transform their lives for the better.
Earlier, the State Security Adviser (South), Mr. Ani Esin said, the programme was initiated in 2018 when the Bakassi Strike Force was seriously agitating in the high seas of Bakassi and Bakassi Peninsula waters.
He pointed out that, the Governor deemed it fit to grant the Ex-Militants Amnesty to enable them to be useful to themselves, the environment and the Community at large.
Mr. Esin advised them to see this opportunity as a green leaf for them to have a second chance in their life and called on them not to abuse it.
On his part, the Permanent Secretary, Dr. Alfred Mboto thanked the Governor, Senator Ben Ayade for the programme which according to him, will change the narrative of Militancy in the State.
He commended the Strike Force for coming out and surrendering their arms for purpose of peace and socio-economic growth in the area.
The event was witnessed by Service Commanders of the Armed Forces and Members of the public.
