I Did Not Waste Public Funds, General Boroh Debunks Allegations Against Amnesty Office

Contrary to reports in some sections of the media alleging that the Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brigadier General Paul Boroh had bought official vehicles for his office worth N157 million as well as inflating sums of money purported to have been expended on the training of ex-militants between November and December of 2015, General Boroh (rtd) has debunked such rumors in the strongest terms possible.

In a press statement made available to the media on Monday, General Boroh stated that while the Amnesty Office has adhered strictly to universally accepted standards of transparency and openness in disclosing its financial transactions, it had followed due process in executing all its transactions in the 2015 budget allocation, paid all stipends, fees and in training allowances owed since 2013-2015 and returned over N400m in unspent funds to the national treasury.

While explaining the achievements of the program under this administration, General Boroh in the statement, stated that the program has without doubt achieved its mandate of helping in stabilising what is a still volatile Niger Delta region.

General Boroh also urged the public to disregard misleading information in the public being spread by disgruntled persons whose aim is to derail and distract the process of the sustainable reintegration of ex-agitators into the society.
