Presidential Amnesty Program to partner Calabar Garment Factory on skills acquisition

Calabar GarmentAs part of efforts to fully re-integrate the Niger Delta militants back into the society, the Presidential Amnesty Program (PAP) is to partner the Cross River State Garment Factory in the areas of skills acquisition.

Disclosing the planned partnership with the Cross River government, in Calabar, after embarking on an inspection of the factory and other ongoing projects at the Ayade Industrial City, Co-ordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Program, Bridgadier-General Paul Boroh (rtd), said: “There is no doubt that the program and my office will partner with Cross River State on this huge project.”

According to Boroh, the Presidential Amnesty Program as you know, is in the re-integration phase and what we are focusing now is on agriculture and skills acquisition.’’

After inspecting the facility, Boroh charged governors of other states to take a cue from what Ayade is doing, noting that with what the governor was doing, Nigeria will be in the forefront of food security, job creation and wealth achievement in no distant future.

“I cannot but continue to appreciate his Excellency for what he is doing and he needs all our support because he sat down and thought about it very well,” the amnesty coordinator commended Ayade.

He noted that the Calabar garment factory has the capacity to produce uniforms for the military and paramilitary organisations in the country.

According to him, “we are particularly excited with we saw at the garment factory. What we saw there we have never seen it anywhere for a long time now in Africa.

“The Nigerian Army Ordinance depot has a smaller version of this, we are very confident that this factory can produce all the uniforms of the Nigerian army, the Nigeria paramilitary as well as the security agencies needed if well managed. And l am very convinced that with Ayade, it can be achieved.”
