Why President Buhari APC Led Govt Should Not Appoint PDP Member As Head Of Amnesty Programme


5th September , 2019


Mr. President, it has become imperative to draw your attention to the untoward activities by some officials in your government whose selfish interests were undermining your integrity and fight against corruption.

It has been speculated all around that a present Minister and former Governor in Niger Delta, in connivance with top and serving military officers are secretly projecting a known member of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Delta state, Mr. Dennis Otuaro, to be appointed as Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

Mr. President, it will interest you to know that at the just concluded Presidential election, this same Dennis Otuaro was the Coordinator, Youth Mobilization of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organization in Gbaramatu Kingdom, and worked tirelessly for the PDP and Atiku Abubakar.

It is also speculated that the proposed appointment of Dennis Otuaro as Coordinator of Amnesty Programme was a planned compensation for Tompolo, an ex-militant that openly supported former Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 and Atiku Abubakar in 2019 respectively against the APC.

Mr. President, there are qualified and countless members of APC in Delta State that should be appointed the Coordinator of Amnesty Programme, and certainly not a die-hard and core PDP member, Dennis Otuaro, who is also the younger brother to Deputy Governor of Delta State, Kingsley Otuaro.

Sir, it is rumoured that Dennis Otuaro has had a secret meeting with your close appointees to push for his appointment as Head of Amnesty programme, and lots of hard currency suspected may have exchanged hands.

Mr. President, God forbid, your APC led government cannot compensate PDP members for working AGAINST you and the APC at the last Presidential election, and particularly, Dennis Otuaro, who was at the front of the campaign against you and APC in Gbaramatu Kingdom at the February presidential election.

Sir, appointing Dennis Otuaro, a core member of PDP in Delta State as Coordinator of Amnesty Programme can only strengthen the PDP to the detriment of APC, particularly now the APC in Delta State is planning toward taking over Delta State in 2023.

An adage says ” a man who deliberately or ignorantly allows a snake into his house must be bitten by the snake”, a core PDP member like Dennis Otuaro can never be appointed as Coordinator of Amnesty programme.

The said Dennis Otuaro may have some money to throw around and made attempts to compromise some officials close to you in the Villa, but one thing is sure, any of your officials in the Villa that will suggest to you to appoint Dennis Otuaro as Coordinator of Amnesty Programme must be arrested and investigated.

Mr. President, for your information, Dennis Otuaro is the younger brother of the PDP Deputy Governor in Delta State, Kingsley Otuaro. And again, Dennis Otuaro is a confidant and personal assistant to Tompolo, ex-militant leader.

Finally, if Dennis Otuaro wants to join the APC in Delta State, the party is open to accommodate him, but not after working against you and APC at the just concluded Presidential election in Gbaramatu kingdom, and in lest than five months he wants you to appoint him Coordinator of amnesty program, this is not possible and unacceptable.

Thank you Mr. President, we know you very well that you will never appoint Dennis Otuaro as Coordinator of Amnesty Programme, even if they decide to blow up oil facilities again in Delta State, which is their known trademark over the years in Niger Delta.
