Chief Ebikabowei Victor-Ben aka Boyloaf


Stakeholders of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) have described as “mischievous, ill-advised and null and void” calls by some unknown persons seeking the sack of the Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Chief Dr. Dennis Otuaru.

According to the stakeholders led by Ex-agitator whó brokered the amnesty deal Chief Ebikabowei Victor-Ben also known as General Boyloaf, said the people of the Niger Delta region are solidly behind the Amnesty Boss and are grateful to President Bola Tinubu for appointing a product of the struggle as the leader of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).

Boyloaf, in a statement issued on Thursday, urged the Presidency to disregard those “unknown elements and faces trending on social media behind the call for the sack of Otuaru, stating that those behind the call does not have the locus standi to make such call.

“The Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) established for specific leaders and stakeholders and not for the entire Niger Delta region, rather, the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) were both established to carter for the region.”

He noted that it is shocking and distasteful that these “unknown and faceless Urban Gorillas behind the calls for Otuaru’s sack were silent during the tenure of Maj. Gen. Barry Ndiomu (retd.), the former Amnesty Boss. Where were they when the previous administration messed-up and bastardised the Amnesty Programme and where are the billions of naira meant to empower beneficiaries through the Presidential Amnesty Programme Cooperative Society Limited bank accounts?

“Let me inform those involved and their sponsors that stakeholders in the region have unanimously declared our support for Chief Dr. Dennis Otuaru as the substantive Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme. He is qualified, competent and most importantly he respects the elders and key stakeholders in the Amnesty Programme.”

“This is the time for everyone to move and support the Amnesty Boss to deliver on the Presidential Mandate for the Programme.”
