"Amnesty Programme worldwide has a limit because it is a master piece strategy to resolve militancy. When that of Nigeria was established in 2009, it was supposed to exist for a particular time.
“I do not intend to bring in more agitators into the programme because that is not my mandate. My mandate is to reintegrate 30 000 ex-agitators that are already in the programme," Boroh said.
Boroh added that FG had entered into a dialogue with the Niger Delta Avengers through the dialogue committee with the aim of putting an end to the bombing of oil facilities in the region.
