A group known as the Integrity Youth Alliance says some people are out to tarnish the reputation of Charles Dokubo, coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.
In a statement on Wednesday, Kelvin Adegbenga, national coordinator of the group, accused some unidentified persons of saying Dokubo had been falsely parading a lady as an aide to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Niger Delta.
Adegbenga said those behind the reports have ulterior motive.
“It’s not the duty of Prof Dokubo to introduce the aide of the Vice-President as the aides are capable of doing it themselves,” the statement read.
“Our investigations have further shown that some people are out to tarnish the image of Prof Dokubo as he has blocked all the loopholes of siphoning Amnesty funds.
“His financial prudence and good ethics is one of the reasons they are disparaging Prof. Dokubo to discourage him since he took over on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.”
Adegbenga added that, “Prof Dokubo can never be distracted to refocus the Amnesty Programme so that it could positively impact those who are meant to be catered for.
“It is on record that the Amnesty office was so disjointed before Prof. Dokubo took over. Those who were employed to do the work were not knowledgeable about the work, so we are not surprised at the recent blackmail against him.”
