Speaking in Port Harcourt, he asked the President to sack the head of the office, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, for what he described as mismanagement in handling the affairs of the ex-militants .
According to him, there was need to ensure that the programme is not manipulated by “a few self-seeking individuals,” whom he accused of shortchanging, arbitrary actions and deliberate delay of payments.
“He should be removed; he has betrayed the region and the trust reposed in his office.”
Jackrich, who is Director General of Network for the Defence of Democracy and Good Governance (NDDGG), also emphasized on the need for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to beam its searchlight on the amnesty office.
He appealed to President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene, so as to alleviate the plight of repentant freedom fighters in order to avert looming crisis and help sustain the peace that has so far been enjoyed in the region.
He commended President Jonathan for establishing the amnesty programme, while accusing Kuku of indirectly truncating it by the way the office is being run.
