By Binebai Princewill 

A group operating under the auspices of Delta Ijaw President Generals Forum has congratulated  High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo on the award of pipline surveillance security contract awarded to Tompolo by the federal government of Nigeria. 

The revered group expressed optimism that Tompolo is capable and will do the job perfectly, stressing that the choice of Tompolo is the best choice ever.

However, the Forum had particularly lauded the Federal Government of Nigeria for awarding the contract to an Ijaw  who is a foremost leader in Nigeria and Niger Delta in particular, adding that the group is so excited. 

The group made their position known via a statement  signed by the duo of Chief Godday Lyon, chairman and Hon Chief Richard Enaredei (JP), Public Relations Officer (PRO), a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.

Nevertheless, the group  had  called on Niger Deltans to all embrace Tompolo and work for the sanitisation of the Niger Delta environment, stressing that internal misunderstanding is not necessary.
