100 Ex-Militants Begin 4-Month Entrepreneurship Training

30 January 2012

In furtherance of the amnesty programme of the Federal Government, about 100 repentant ex- militants from the Niger-Delta region will start a four-month entrepreneurship training in three major vocations in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

The ex-militants drawn from Imo, Anambra, Rivers, Delta, Ondo, Bayelsa, Edo and Akwa-Ibom States are to be trained as car dealers, spare parts dealers and consumer electronics dealers during the four months intensive training programme.

This formed part of the several empowerment and rehabilitation programmes of the Presidential Amnesty Office headed by the Special Adviser to the President on Niger-Delta Affairs, Kingsley Kuku, who is also the chief executive officer of the Amnesty Programme.

The training programme, which will kick-off simultaneously in other centres across the nine states of the Niger-Delta, will be anchored in Ondo state by Creeknet Global Services in conjunction with the Presidential Amnesty Office, Abuja.
