The Amnesty Programme has not yet achieved all its objectives.Thought the programme has succeeded in returning relative peace to Niger Delta region, the Federal Government has so far failed to fulfil its side of the accord.
Implementation of key infrastructural projects and addressing the environmental challenges affecting the region have yet to be achieved.
In a nutshell, I am of the view that the Amnesty Programmes has not realised its objectives. It has only restored peace to the region which has made it possible for the Federal Government to have free flow of oil thereby increasing government’s revenues.
Moreover, some of the problems are still there. The problems such as the lack of fairness, equity and justice in the management of the resources for the development of the region have remained.
