President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday sacked Brig. General Paul Boroh as Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme for ex-militants in the Niger Delta.
Prof. Charles Dokubo has been appointed as Boroh’s successor, according to Buhari’s media aide Femi Adesina.
Dokubo is currently Director of Research and Studies at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs.
He holds a PhD in Strategic Studies from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom, and hails from Abonema, Akuku-Toru Local Government of Rivers State.
In the meantime, Buhari has directed the National Security Adviser (NSA) to carry out a full investigation into the activities of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 to date.
