Niger Delta Youth leader, Amb. John Dekawei has stated that those fighting against High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo on the Pipline Surveillance security contract awarded to him by the Federal Government of Nigeria are the real enemies of Ijaw nation. 

The Niger Delta Youth leader, Amb. John Dekawei made the accusation via a statement he personally signed and issued to newsmen in Warri yesterday, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.

According to him, it has become important for him to talk because as a critical stakeholder in the region, he can no longer seat and watch while things are going wrong. 

However, Dekawei particularly described the attack on Tompolo regarding the pipeline surveillance contract by some Niger Deltans as strange and totally unnecessary. 

Dekawei had wondered that since when the contract was in the hands of others, there was no protest from such quarters, adding that such pull him down syndrome would not work. 

Speaking further, the youth leader asserted that Tompolo as a Nigerian has the right to bid for any contract and to execute any contract if approved by the powers that be. 

He continued that the bidding of the contract was open for everyone, a situation that saw many across the country including foreigners that bidded for it. 

Nevertheless, the Niger Delta social crusader and renowned philanthropist maintained that it is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind that Tompolo have sacrificed a lot for Nigeria, Niger Delta and for the Ijaws, stressing that his struggles have brought development to the region. 

Meanwhile, John Dekawei stated that such internal bickering born out of jealousy against Tompolo is not needed and uncalled for, describing it as unprogressive and unpatriotic to Ijaw nation, adding that owing to the many sacrifices that Tompolo have done for the region and the country at large, he is even worth more than the pipeline surveillance security  contract, warning that people should stop seeing it otherwise.
