Ijaw Youths Council calls for the probe of Presidential Amnesty Programme


The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) Worldwide has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to extend proposed forensic audit of the activities of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).

IYC, in a statement by its Secretary-General, Mr. Alfred Kemepado, commended President Buhari for the proposed forensics audit saying if sincerely carried out it would reveal the rot in the NDDC.

Kemepado said instead of addressing the issues that led to their establishment, the NDDC and the PAP had become the problems of the region.

He also called on the President to devote sufficient time in evaluating members of any committee saddled with the responsibility to audit the commission to avoid any form of compromise.
