Nigeria-amnestyIjaw youths in the Niger Delta region have suggested a former governorship candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, Mr. Famous Daunemuagha, as a replacement for Kingsley Kuku, the immediate past Chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Implementation Committee.

Mr. Daunemuagha emerged the preferred candidate for the position among the youths, who screened no fewer than 12 indigenes of the region as Mr. Kuku’s replacement on Saturday.

The position of the Ijaw youths was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of their summit in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and signed by Ebikuro Ayaowei of the Niger Delta Youth Coalition.

The Ijaw youths, drawn from various groups in the Ijaw nationality, said the ex-governorship candidate was the best among the pack of 12 names being considered as possible replacement for Kuku.

They, therefore, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to accept their choice insisting that Daunemuagha would promote confidence and sincerity of the administration towards the region.

The Ijaw youths said their screening was carried out with due consideration of the policy statement made by President Buhari during his inauguration on May 29.

Their communiqué noted, “The coalition of Ijaw youths and groups endorsed Famous Daunemuagha as the most qualified Niger Deltan for the position of Chairman, Presidential Amnesty Programme, given his background, commitment and the active role he played in the Niger Delta struggle.

“The coalition is therefore calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint Daunemuagha as his Special Adviser on Niger Delta and Chairman of PAP”.
