About 53 groups in Northern Nigeria have passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the Presidential Amnesty programme, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, not to sack Gen Paul Boroh.

The group also called on the Federal Government not to be distracted by calls from groups in a section of the country for a change in the leadership of the amnesty programme.

Speaking in Kaduna on Sunday May 29, 2016, the Secretary General of Hope Arewa Development Initiative (HADI), Mallam Musa Wada, said Amnesty programme is a national project which must be supported by all Nigerians considering the role it has played in stabilizing the polity.

While condemning calls for the removal of the Coordinator of the Amnesty programme, Brig Gen Paul Boroh, the group said the calls was for a selfish interest of some elites in the Niger-Delta region who are not comfortable with the transparent approach in the entire programme.
