The Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) has dismissed reports of an alleged rift between the National Security Adviser (NSA) and the interim administrator of the presidential amnesty programme over tenure extension.
The spokesperson of ONSA, Zakari Usman, disclosed this on Sunday, noting that the said news report on an online medium was falsely concocted to stoke confusion and mislead the public.
He said the NSA chief, Babagana Monguno, had called on stakeholders and amnesty beneficiaries to continue to support ongoing reforms at the programme’s office.
According to him, the interim administrator of the presidential amnesty programme, Dixon Dikio, enjoys the full support and confidence of the NSA.
“Therefore, stakeholders across the Niger Delta, public and media, are advised to disregard and dismiss the report as a spurious work of journalism.
“The amnesty beneficiaries are equally encouraged to continue to support ongoing reforms of the programme,” he said.
