is the amnesty programme working?
« on: August 29, 2009, 10:09:33 AM »
a few more days to the end of the deadline given by the government to militants to disarm and benefit from its amnesty programme,mend the major millitant organisation in the niger delta seem to be barking once again,nd they ve threatend to continue from were they stopped.if they indeed carry out there threat,i think they will be going too far,becos this amnesty thing,which might not be the only solution to everything,but at least its a start and i think mend should not let this opportunity to pass.acting contrary will not be acting in good faith.


  my fellow bloggers,lets reason.

The problem is that both sides are not sincere concerning the anmnesty issue. Government have started colleting guns and all from the repentant "militants" yet we are not seeing mass roll out of machinery to develop the region,employment e.t.c. the so called "militants" due to internal squabbles are crying foul.
The worst thing is that our so called leaders are not helping matters at all,those that see themselves as the only capable hands in the niger delta matters all because of their selfish,political ambitions. My annoyance is that, why is the government that claims to be sincere still recycle people that have failed us over and over again.
To me, I dont see it working till.....
