2023: ‘We will stop campaigns’: Ex-militants vow over unpaid stipends



THETALK.NG reports that Ex-militants vow to stop campaigns over unpaid stipends

The ex-militants threat follows unpaid stipends to their members by the management of the programme.

Daily Trust reports that the ex-militants also staged a protest to the secretariat of the Nigerian Union of Journalists in Yenagoa over the de-listing of 2,952 beneficiaries.

The group alleged that the amnesty office refused to pay them the monthly stipends of N65,000 monthly.

While threatening to take their protest to PAP office in Abuja, the militants wanted that there would be no political party campaign within the nine states in the Niger Delta region until their stipends are paid.

Speaking on behalf of the ex-militants, the national chairman of phase two beneficiaries of the amnesty programme, Aso Tambo, announced that the group was giving the amnesty office one-week ultimatum to commence immediate payment of those delisted from the payroll of the programme.

His words:

“If they feel we are dogs that bark and can not bite, they should dare us and see the consequence.

“They should consider the monthly stipends important and know that such payment will lead to an unimaginable crises of not paid immediately.”
