Dikio names key appointment in PAP

Published by The Nation on Fri, 11 Jun 2021

By Mike Odiegwu, Port HarcourtThe Niger Delta region was thrown into jubilation on Friday as the Interim Administrator, Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Col. Milland Dixon Dikio named Alfred Kemepado as the programmes Head of Reintegration (HOR).Stakeholders, who celebrated the appointment, described it as a further proof that Dikio was interested in repositioning the PAP to achieve its desired mandate.They described HOR as a critical arm of the PAP, that required a thoroughbred, grassroot, versatile and vibrant individual like Kemepado, who understood the problems of the region, to man it.Kemepado was a former Secretary-General, the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) Worldwide, a former Special Adviser to the Governor of Bayelsa State and until recently the Special Adviser on Special Duties to Dikio.Ex-militant leaders including the Big Five were said to be at peace with Kemepados new role at the amnestys office.Kemepado reportedly endeared himself to the ex-militant leaders for being a significant part of the Interim Administrators think tank that ensured the return of PAP to its owners in the Niger Delta region.Besides, most of the beneficiaries of the amnesty programme the first, second and third phases, were said to have heaved a sigh of relief that Kemepados administrative style, experience and wealth of knowledge would help in addressing the problems of reintegration.Also, Kemepado was reportedly viewed as a bridge between the beneficiaries of the programme, who are majorly youths and Niger Delta elders, who in their past interactions with him saw him as a budding leader.Some of the elders commended Dikio for the appointment saying the amnesty boss had consistently shown uncommon interest to sustain the peace in the region.A former Commander of the Bakassi Freedom Fighters (BFF) Franklin Duduku, who hailed the appointment described it as a strategic and critical step im deepening the reforms introduced in PAP by Dikio.He recalled that Dikio successfully retrieved PAP from the stranglehold of contractors; reformed the programmes scholarship scheme; involved all stakeholders in PAPs operations and returned the scheme to the region.With this appointment, these reforms will be deepened for the optimum performance of PAP. We are happy with the latest appointment. Kemepado has shown strength of character, sincerity, and strong leadership qualities.We believe that it is one appointment that nobody in the region will oppose because Kemepado will work in harmony with the amnesty boss to address all the challenges of reintegration in the amnesty office.
