The federal government on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 begged the former Niger-Delta militants to exercise patience as they were working towards paying their outstanding allowances .

The special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Niger Delta, Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) disclosed that the reason for the delay in payment was because they had not received budgetary allocation by the amnesty office.

Boroh, who doubles as the coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) said: “I want to assure the ex-militants under the programme that arrangements are being made to fast-track the payment of their stipends as soon as the amnesty office receives its allocation.”

This is coming as the new militant group in the region, Niger Delta Avengers blew up a main Chevron Escravos oil pipeline in the area even as the 14-day ultimatum given to oil bloc owners elapses on Thursday, May 26, 2016.
