Ndiomu Breaking Barriers At PAP

Gov. Diri and Gen Ndiomu

By Saturday Jene

“Interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, Maj. Gen. Barry Ndiomu rtd, is four months old on the job. Within this period he has made a difference, his ideas, actions and policies are a complete departure from those of past chief executive officers of the Programme since its creation in 2009,” these were the words of Commrade Saturday Jene, President of Niger Delta Watch Group.

He said this in a statement issued in Bayelsa today in response to the corrupt allegation being levelled against the IA.

According to the statement, Ndiomu has extracted a firm commitment from relevant agencies of government at the centre like the Police, Customs, National Information Development Agency, NIDA, to open the employment door for qualified ex-agitors for enlistment into their agencies and to offer ICT knowledge to those willing to be educated in that direction.

All these are happening in the tenure of Ndiomu, a retired army general and a son of Bayelsa State, the statement continues.

Ndiomu he said is also bent in transforming the PAP so that its business as usual ugly past of yesteryears becomes a thing of the past especially in the formal education scholarship scheme.

But  as usual, Jene said those that are neck deep in the graft practices are not idly sitting back. They are fighting back by spreading unfounded allegations that PAP has abolished the formal education scholarship scheme that has produced many first class students from universities both at home and abroad.
