Buhari Sacks Boroh, Appoints Dokubo As New Amnesty Coordinator

President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked Brig. General Paul Boroh as coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme and announced Professor Charles Dokubo as his successor.

Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, announced the development in Abuja on Tuesday.

Prof Dokubo is currently Director of Research and Studies at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs. He holds a PhD in Strategic Studies from the University of Bradford, United Kingdom. Also, he hails from Abonema, Akuku-Toru Local Government of Rivers State.

Meanwhile, the President has directed the National Security Adviser (NSA) to carry out a full investigation into the activities of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 to date.

According to Adesina, the investigation should particularly cover the allegations of “financial impropriety and other acts that are allegedly detrimental to the objectives of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.’’
