President Goodluck Jonathan has confirmed the granting of presidential pardon to a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, and a few other ex-convicts.
PREMIUM TIMES had broken the strory of the pardon while the meeting was underway Tuesday morning.
We also reported details of the proceedings minutes after the meeting ended.
Presidential spokespersons had gone underground for most of yesterday in what appeared a ploy to dodge media enquiry on the controversial pardon of a man who stole his people blind while governor.
WHAT A SHAME!What arrogance?
