    FG signs contract agreement with skills training partners.
    …. As ex-militants get set for empowerment
    Another landmark historic event was recorded on Monday, 26th July, 2010, as the official contract signing ceremony between the Federal Government and the first set of approved skills training institutions was staged. The event took place at the Amnesty office in Abuja and members of the press were well represented. This event underscores the Federal Governments’ determination to fulfill its promise by positioning 20,192 registered ex-militants of the Niger Delta region who accepted the Presidential Amnesty in 2009 to acquire knowledge and skills in vocations, education and entrepreneurship.
    The immediate beneficiaries of the training package of the Amnesty programme’s reintegration phase are those who successfully completed the demobilization training at the first transformation camp held between 28 June and 10 July, 2010, at Obubra, Cross Rivers state.
    Representatives of the training institutions who were in attendance commended the efforts of the Federal Government through the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and assured of their commitment to the Amnesty programme’s strategic objectives. They also expressed gladness for the opportunity to contribute positively to the development of the Niger Delta.
    God bless Niger Delta, God bless Nigeria
