Nigerian government says amnesty progromme for militants is a success

Foreign Affairs Minister, Chief Ojo Maduekwe said  yesterday that the amnesty package offered militants was working, noting that the nation’s oil output was set to rise.

He spoke at the ongoing United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA,

“The militants have accepted the amnesty and are surrendering,” Maduekwe said, adding that “now we need to fulfil our commitment that they are rehabilitated.” MEND had recently extended a two-month-old ceasefire in the oil-rich region Delta by 30 days.
