Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has asked ex-agitators from the Niger Delta to hold their leaders responsible for any lapses in the implementation of the amnesty program.
Bello made the call on Wednesday in Abuja when he received members of the Ex-Agitators Forum from the Niger Delta at the Kogi Governors lodge in Abuja.
He said that President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to developing the region and has been playing his role.
He urged members of the ex-agitators forum not to allow the political elites, who leverage on existing fault, to sow seeds of division.
“Your agitation is not misplaced. I appreciate the spokesperson that spoke concerning the effort of our former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. President Buhari is doing his best as well to build on what is done by former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.
“Mr President cannot leave the villa and call each one of you and be administering the Amnesty one after the other,” Yahaya Bello said.
He said further that Nigeria could only be fixed if everybody, irrespective of ethnic origin, religious and political views, came together.
