Dikio exits PAP, seeks support for Gen. Ndiomu
By Chris Ezeonoh, Port Harcourt
The out-going Interim Administrator for the Presidential Amnesty Program, (PAP) Col. Milland Dikio (retd), has called on stakeholders in the Niger Delta to support the incoming Administrator, Maj.-Gen. Barry Ndiomu (retd) to succeed in his new appointment.
In a statement he issued on Friday, Dikio expressed confidence that Ndiomu would build and expand the foundation he laid to transform ex-agitators into net contributors to the economy.
According to the former Administrator, his two-year term in the Amnesty office has brought immense transformation in the lives of the ex-agitators, turning them into net contributors to the economy of the Niger Delta and the nation at large.
“This foundation will doubtless serve my successor well in giving effect to the next phase of the President’s agenda for the PAP in particular and the Niger Delta region.
“I, therefore, warmly congratulate the newly appointed Interim Administrator, Major-General Barry Tariye Ndiomu (rtd), to whom, the President, in his wisdom has entrusted the next phase of this critical national assignment.

“I urge all stakeholders to avail him the same support and cooperation extended to me while praying for God’s speed and wisdom for him, as he engages on this onerous task”, the statement read in part.
Dikio, who thanked God for availing him the grace to carry out his assignment, expressed profound gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for giving him the opportunity to serve the country.
He said: “I wish to also place on record my immense appreciation to the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd) for his direction and peerless support throughout the period of my service as the IA.
“The clear repositioning of the program, resulting in the relative stability of the Niger Delta region would not have been possible without the leadership and unwavering support of the President, NSA, Chief of Staff to the President, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the ex-agitators and key stakeholders in the region.
“I deeply appreciate my team of special assistants and team of very dedicated support staff who worked tirelessly to return the PAP to its original mandate”, the former Administrator stated.
