Many see politics today as a game where the key players have similar characteristics when it comes to fulfilling promises.
Many a politician has over the years fraudulently attained positions and promised very unrealistic solutions to lives problems. We see these politicians every now and then tricking the masses with paltry sum only to be voted in and “booooph” they disappear into thin air, looting and carting away with billions of public funds.
This sought of politics is the reason why people lost faith and have shaking trust in the system long time ago. This has made so many Nigerians visualise politics as a means of livelihood.
The above isn’t the case of some well meaning Nigerians though, an exemplary figure, a flower that grew out of a concrete has overtime been proving to the people of the South – South that positive possibilities is attainable through selfless services, human resources based initiatives, youth empowerment programmes, personality building and humanitarian driven programmes. This man is an angel sent to salvage the people of the South South region since his installment as the Head person in charge of the Amnesty programme. Hence the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta/Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier General Paul Boroh (Rtd), recently he has been using technical experts with commendable talents recruited from previous beneficiaries of the scheme that had been trained internationally so as to proffer lasting solutions to problems they encountered during their course year abroad. He has been on ground working tirelessly to discover valuable contributions to society in line with the on-going reintegration strategy of the Presidential Amnesty Programme. More so, recognition of outstanding accomplishments by beneficiaries is in due process, opinionated by the Coordinator (Gen. Boroh, Rtd) with the intention of setting commendable standards for the upcoming generation, thereby making the beneficiaries more useful to themselves, immediate environment and country at large.
Currently, there are over 4000 beneficiaries of the Presidential Amnesty programme who have hence become more productive, law abiding, less violent/more receptive to government policies. Technically it is therefore highly commendable and worthy of note that a good job is been saddled by the General looking at all these transformation going on from every angle in the Niger – Delta
It looks very magical, real though that former agitators have simply become vanguards of peace and tranquility in Nigeria. Back in Malaysia, I lived with some of the Niger Delta Ex Militants (agitators) looking back at when they came into the education system abroad and now, they have completely changed from the very scary and inpatient people to well refined handsome looking cool minded individuals.
It is therefore with this symmetrical comparison that I wish to commend firstly the Nigerian Government for these wonderful initiative towards curbing future insurgency and the present Pilot of the initiative. I must say here that General Paul Boroh (Rtd) is an exemplary figure, a living legend and of course a pace setter in the piloting of the affairs of the government initiative and projecting beneficiaries to places above their expectations as creation of Jobs for graduates in ongoing currently as we speak. According to sources, Vocational skill Acquisition is at its peak of which those without basic primary school education have been inculcated.
Speaking to Hon. Jude Gbaboyor, IT Consultant and CEO of Jaygreat Farms, he stated clearly that ideas are welcomed from in and out of the country to better the lives and future of the Niger Delta people. He further explained that a website that will receive suggestions, criticism of any sought and possibly Idea recommendations and or complains of the entire populace of the Niger Delta region will be put in place and funded by his office so that fairness and transparency will be ascertained in line with the present political dispensation.
According to Engr. Gbaboyor Jude, “It is only natural that when our efforts are acknowledged and respected as been part of a team we are motivated to do more.
Gen. Boroh is second to none so far as regards leadership qualities as Special Adviser to the Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
LONG LIVE GEN. PAUL BOROH,
LONG LIVE NIGER – DELTA,
LONG LIVE NIGERIA.
