In a bid to secure the fruitful results of the amnesty program, a Nigerian subsidiary of Samsung Heavy Industries, Bradama International, is set to offer jobs to 1,000 ex-militants.
The company is offering the opportunity to the ex-militants in a bid to key into the Federal Government’s amnesty program. Bradama International has thus offered to train and then subsequently employ 1,000 Niger Delta ex-militants.
According to reports, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Chief Bibopere Ajube, disclosed this in Ondo while conducting officials of Samsung Industries in inspection of the company’s facilities.
Ajube, who was part of the Niger Delta struggle said: “We were in this struggle together and I was spending every kobo I made to build this facility for my brothers from the creek and because I realised they needed to have livelihoods. So, I built this hostel to help them focus and have what to do with the rest of their lives.”
The ex-militants were mostly trainees at Bradama International, one of the few vocational centres recognized and accredited by the government.
