Former Special Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs, Mr. Kingsley Kuku has advised the new government on how to ensure that the relative peace in the Niger Delta is sustained.

Speaking at a valedictory speech in Abuja, Kuku said peace will continue to reign in the region if there was a deliberate and genuine effort by the Federal Government to implement major components of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP).

According to him, PAP under his watch, has been able to implement the crucial phase of disarming, demolishing and reintegrating (DDR) the ex-militants who signed up to the Amnesty Programme in 2009. While this has been a success, he noted that the major task of developing the Niger Delta, which was the key demand of the agitators, was yet to be given serious attention by government.
He therefore advised that genuine attention be given to the area, which is blessed with the natural resource accounting for 75 percent of government revenue.
