The Pere of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State, HRM Oboro Gbaraun II, Aketekpe, Agadagba, on Monday disclosed that the intervention of the Presidential Amnesty Programme has boosted the manpower capacity of his kingdom.

He affirmed that the program has raised over 500 graduates in his kingdom with some of the graduates emerging with first class in their various disciplines.

The monarch made the submission at his palace while hosting the interim Administrator of PAP, Col. Milland Dikio (retd.), who paid him a courtesy visit shortly before inspecting the Maritime University.

While commending Dikio for his various initiatives, the Gbaramatu monarch said his people are optimistic that with him in the saddle, they would produce more graduates, who would compete with their counterparts anywhere in the world.

“We are proud of the Amnesty Programme because of what it has done for us as a people. We have benefitted immensely from the scholarship scheme.

“In the 80’s and 90’s, the number of graduates we had was nothing to write home about, but today, we have more than 500 graduates,” the monarch said.

Speaking earlier, Dikio said he had “come to visit the Maritime University to see things for myself and also for you to hear from us and advise us as we move on.”
