Two of the ex-militants, Nicholas Goodness and Terubein Fawei, graduated from the University of Bedfordshire with first class honours in public relations, telecommunication and networking engineering respectively.

While Lucky Azibanagein graduated with first a class in mechanical engineering and Robotic system from the University of Liverpool.

Speaking on Friday during an event organised by the Nigerian High Commission in the UK, the Coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Paul Boroh, congratulated the graduates for making Nigeria proud.

He said: “President Buhari is ever ready to implement the blueprint upon which the amnesty programme was established. The era of impunity and phoney contracts are gone for good,” Mr. Boroh said.

Mr. Boroh, a retired General of the Nigerian Army, also called on other militants such as the Niger Delta Avengers to emulate the militants who “laid down their arms to embrace education that can make them indispensable to the world”.

He cautioned the ‘economic saboteurs’ to embrace dialogue and support Mr. Buhari on his agenda to develop the Niger Delta region.
