President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Prof. Charles Quaker Dokubo as the new Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme for former Niger Delta militants.
This is coming on the heels of allegations mismanagement of funds for the programme.
Dokubo is to replace Brigadier-General Paul Boroh (retd).
Dokubo is currently the 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.
A statement by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday said Buhari has also directed the National Security Adviser, General Babagana Monguno, to carry out a full investigation into the activities of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 to date, especially allegations of financial impropriety and other acts that are allegedly detrimental to the objectives of the programme.
