The Joint Revolutionary Council, a coalition unit of all agitating groups in the Niger Delta, wish to bring to the notice of all men of goodwill the fact that the Presidential Amnesty Programme is currently under siege, as it has continued to be in the past three years.

The Amnesty Programme, which was designed to cater to the expectations of former agitating units of the struggle for the liberation and emancipation of the Niger Delta, has now become the hotbed of political rent-seekers, shadow workers and hundreds of other non-related Niger Delta interests.
