Niger Delta: Boroh appeals to ex-agitators over delayed stipends

The Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Mr Paul Boroh, has appealed to the ex-agitators in the Niger-Delta region to bear with the government over the current delay to paid their stipends.

In a statement by Mr Piriye Kiyaramo, his Media Coordinator, Amnesty Programme, Bayelsa Liaison Office on Friday said that Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was saddled with the responsibility of effecting the payments of stipends directly to the ex-agitators in region, in line with the Treasury Single Accounts (TSA).

He said that Amnesty Office had been making efforts to ensure that the outstanding stipends were paid, and appealed to them to have faith in the payment process.

“I must recall that the TSA is a public accounting system under which all government revenue, receipts and income are collected into one single account.

“This account is usually maintained by the CBN and all payments are being done through this account as well; I am urging you all to have faith,” he said.
