Tomorrow is a New Day, Phase II: Building a Peace Architecture in the Niger Delta for 2015 and Beyond. UNDP describes the region as suffering from “administrative neglect, crumbling social infrastructure and services, high unemployment, social deprivation, abject poverty, filth and squalor, and endemic conflict” The underdevelopment of the Delta results partly from official government neglect and the destruction of alternative livelihoods by oil production creating economic dependence and a high sense of entitlement among the people. On-going poverty, and its contrast with the wealth generated by oil, has become one of the world’s starkest and most disturbing examples of the “resource curse”. While the Amnesty Programme provides a critical opportunity to reduce violence in the region, it has numerous flaws in its long-term sustainability. First, not all youth who were involved in violence were allowed to register to participate. One of the key findings from the initial Tomorrow is a New Day, Phase 1, (TND 1) baseline survey was that: only 43-63% respondents felt that the Amnesty Process has contributed to reconciliation in their community, because not everyone was allowed to participate and some leaders have been accused of putting their relatives on the list even though they were not former militants. Abia was selected based on the fact that they have a large number of militants who are not formally part of the amnesty programme. In April 2013, over 5000 youth from Abia State signed a petition questioning why they have been excluded by the Federal Amnesty Programme. Second, for the ex-militants who are a part of the Amnesty programme, many are excited about possibilities for education and job training, yet it does not create numerous livelihood opportunities or economic growth. Like other Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) Programmes across Africa, ‘the training received was often poorly suited to labour market needs [Pre-existing] skills were often ignored rather than reinforced’. It is also highly likely that ex-militants feelings of relative deprivation may have also increased by their time abroad, where they saw the social amenities that many citizens of other countries enjoy, only to return home to the exact same conditions that existed pre-militancy. A final challenge is that Amnesty places little to no emphasis on resolving old grievances, supporting reintegration, or facilitating reconciliation and healing within communities. During the run-up to 2015 presidential and gubernatorial elections, these issues will likely be put to the test. With arms still abundant in the region, active illicit networks involved in illegal oil trade, and with many young people still lacking skills in dialogue and non-violent problem-solving, the Niger Delta remains a highly explosive regions. Keeping tense youth engaged in the reintegration process, and finding new opportunities for security and acceptance in their communities, will be an important for the proposed action, Tomorrow is a New Day, Phase II: Building a peace Architecture in the Niger Delta for 2015 and Beyond (TND II).
