The Presidency has said it is considering reviewing its partnership with Kaplan International Colleges of the United States (US) for the training of ex-Niger Delta militants under the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), saying its demands are outrageous.
The Special Adviser to the President on Niger/Delta and the Coordinator of PAP, Brig-Gen Paul Boroh (rtd) disclosed this in Abuja. on Monday, after a meeting between the Ministry of Niger/ Delta and a team from Kasha? International Agriculture Development Organisation (KIADO).
According to Boroh, “The payments for offshore delegates have been done, and even some isolated ones that I had which are due to ?their bank account not being correct is being addressed, so we are not owing any of the institution outside the country anymore”.
Responding to a question about some of the former war lords sent packing by Kaplan, he said; “it is more of technical thing and we are looking at it, it is the same with the Kaplan issue too, that has to do with funding in the sense that the funds they are asking for I think is outrageous, so am thinking twice for the review.Follow us on Twitter at @Riverinenews
