Three former Niger-Delta militants, who were sent to the UK on scholarship under the amnesty programme, have graduated with First class Honours in their respective disciplines and another eighteen of them graduated with Second Class Upper.
Lucky Azibanagein graduated from the University of Liverpool with a first class in mechanical engineering and Robotic system, while Terubein Fawei and Nicholas Goodness made first class in telecommunication and networking engineering and public relations, respectively, from the University of Bedfordshire.
Coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Paul Boroh, in a ceremony organised for the students by the Nigerian High Commission in the UK, congratulated the graduates for making Nigeria proud, while restating President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment towards sustaining the amnesty programme.
“President Buhari is ever ready to implement the blueprint upon which the amnesty programme was established. The era of impunity and phoney contracts are gone for good,” Boroh said.
Boroh also called on other militants to lay down their weapons, embrace dialogue and support the president in his agenda to develop the Niger Delta region.
