Twenty-seven beneficiaries of the Presidential Amnesty Programme who completed a six-month training in automobile engineering at the Hyundai Automobile Centre in Koforidua, Eastern Region, Ghana on April 2 have been evacuated to Nigeria amidst daunting challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Ambassador Femi Michael Abikoye, on Thursday reviewed the performance of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, with a verdict that it has recorded unprecedented achievements under Prof. Charles Dokubo as the Coordinator.

Twenty-six-year-old Ovbude, who was pregnant and delivered her first baby in her final year, clinched a first class degree in Mass Communication with a CGPA of 4.86 and the coveted prize for overall best graduating student.

The objective of the visit is to enable Dokubo evaluate the academic progress of the students, interact with them and address challenges in the course of their studies, in conjunction with officials of the Embassy of Nigeria in Washington DC.
