Tompolo Urges Nigerian youths to support Tinubu

Former Niger Delta militant leader and founder of the Federal Government contracted private pipeline security organisation, Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited, Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo, has charged Nigerian youths to partner with President Bola Tinubu in his efforts to salvage the country from “socioeconomic saboteurs.”

Envoys from the All Progressives Congress Youth Wing visited Tompolo at Oporoza, the traditional headquarters of Gbaramatu Kingdom in the Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, on Saturday. They brought him “awards of appreciation for protecting the nation’s crude oil assets and also for empowering youths in the Niger Delta region in particular and Nigeria in general.”

Executives from the APC’s National Youth Wing, including National officers, Zonal Officers, State Youth Leaders, and Ward-level officers, were accompanied by the group.

The group used the opportunity to pledge their loyalty to Tompolo and presented awards of excellence to him.
The group also recognised Tompolo for not just empowering the youths in the Ijaw nation but Niger Delta and Nigeria as a whole.

The group said they had decided to present the awards to Tompolo for effectively protecting the nation’s crude oil assets “based on the services rendered through his organisation, Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited, to the nation by protecting crude oil against theft and vandalism.”

Tompolo, while thanking the group for the awards, urged Nigerian youths to “work with Mr. President Bola Tinubu in salvaging the country.”

He said, “I thank all of you very much for leaving your various places and travelling to Oporoza here. It’s not an easy task. I believe you have read in different newspapers that Tompolo is fighting illegal bunkering.
“Yes, crude oil is the only source of survival in this country and 90 percent of our people, in one way or another, are involved in illegal bunkering.

“So, I admonish our people, especially the youth wing, to stand firm with Mr. President and join those who are doing the right thing to salvage our country.”

Speaking with journalists on the occasion, one of the leaders of the visiting group, Jamaluddeen Kabir, said, “We recognised him based on the fact that he is empowering the youths, not just in Ijaw nation but all over the country. We are living testimony to this.

“We, therefore expect him to continue to support the youths and partner with APC’s Youth Wing down to the grassroots.”

On his part, APC Southwest Youth Leader Lawal Paff said, “Tompolo has made the country proud by helping the government secure the pipelines, the action that has improved internally generated revenue.”

He, therefore, called on the youths to take advantage of this to partner with Tompolo’s security outfit in improving Nigeria’s oil production.

“I am calling on our youths to take advantage of what Tompolo is doing and work with him to make the country great. Always think of what you can do for Nigeria, and as a nation and not what Nigeria can do for them,” Lawal Paff stated.
