Boroh Spreads Message of Peace, Spends Democracy Day in Oproza
While Nigerians were celebrating their Democracy Day, the special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and the Coordinator of the Niger Delta Presidential Amnesty Programme was busy in the creeks finding a lasting solution to the recent attacks on the nation’s oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta region.
After series of meetings in Warri, Delta State, Rtd General Boroh surprised many by paying an unscheduled visit to Oproza in Gbaramatu Kingdom.
Following a thorough inspection of the community, Gen Boroh paid a courtesy call on the traditional ruler, HRH Pere Naira Williams Ogoba.
The Gbaramatu Monach who warmly welcomed the Amnesty boss, quickly expressed his displeasure on the way his community was treated.
He who insisted that the people of Gbaramatu are peace loving and willing to help the Federal Government move the Nation forward, pleaded with the retired General to ask the soldiers on ground to be calm and gentile in the way they carry out their duties.
In his response, General Boroh apologized for any wrong perception the people of Gbaramatu might have about the military operation.
He also expressed concern on the way vandals are freely carrying out mayhem by bombing oil and gas installations without the intervention of the community.
“It is saddening that the activities of these vandals, is having a direct effect on the economy of the nation" Gen Boroh said.
He promised to take the message of peace back to the President and pleaded with the King to send the same message of peace to his people.
