A former warlord in the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta , MEND,  Mr Josiah Oyakongan, aka  Commander Oyimi 1, has  hailed the decision of the federal government to  award surveillance contract to  High Chief Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, saying engagement of Niger Deltans to protect oil facilities will reduce oil theft to the lowest level.

Oyakongan who is the Chairman Movement for the Actualisation of the Dreams of Niger Deltans, MADND,  said the choice of Tompolo was a good one, describing Tompolo  as one committed to development in the Niger Delta and the country at large. “The surveillance contract to Tompolo by the FG, is a good one. Tompolo is very  committed  to  peace and stability of the Niger Delta region.”

“Tompolo has made substantial sacrifices for the peace and economic stability of the Niger Delta, so he deserves it and even more.”

“The direct engagement of indigenes, especially youths, and a critical stakeholder like Tompolo in the protection of oil installations and facilities in the area will deepen peace, which will indeed translate to economic growth. “”Hence, I commend the Federal Government for awarding the pipeline surveillance contract of protecting oil pipelines and installations in the Niger Delta to Tompolo. There is a need for the Federal Government to continue to partner  with Tompolo for sustenance of peace.”
