He said that henceforth all activities in PAP would be subjected to periodic review in line with the mandate of the programme.

Gen. Ndiomu described the reintegration stage of PAP as critical.

”I will create new channels to ensure constant dialogue with the programme beneficiaries and stakeholders in the Niger Delta region.

”I will pursue a managerial paradigm shift that would dismantle all the challenges hindering the programme and blocking exit routes of trained agitators.

”The programme is designed with an exit route for all trained and empowered ex-agitators adding that retaining same number of ex-agitators after 13 years of operation was against PAP’s mandate,” he said.

Federal Government

He said the Federal Government  was magnanimous enough to extend the life span of the programme to allow for peace and harmony in the region. 

South America

He appealed to stakeholders to bear in mind that one day the programme would end as it did in other conflict zones especially in South America.

Niger Delta

Ndiomu, however, said the programme would not be terminated abruptly in the interest of the prevailing peace in the Niger Delta region. 

“Maybe some day, the programme may  transit or metamorphose  into a more robust and sustainable initiative  that will take into account the special needs of the people in the face of present dynamics of the region”, he said.

Niger Delta

He appealed to the delegates and stakeholders in the Niger Delta to support his administration’s efforts to realise the mandate of PAP. 

Ndiomu further promised to revive all the PAP vocational centres for massive deployment of ex-agitators for training and empowerment. 

All representatives of the various stakeholders at the meeting promised to support Ndiomu’s plans to actualise the mandate of PAP in the interest of the region.
