A life transforming Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Ernest Bebenimibo Foundation has described high Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo as an apostle of peace in the Niger Delta.
The Foundation made this known to newsmen in Warri earlier today via a statement signed by President of the foundation, Comr. Ernest Bebenimibo, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.
He noted that the developmental strides of Tompolo have inspired lots of people in the region, stressing that the Ernest Bebenimibo Foundation derives its motivation and inspiration through the kind gestures of the former warlord particularly the Tompolo Foundation and the Lord Almighty who make everything possible.
Ernest who issued the statement on behalf of officials of the Foundation maintained that Tompolo is the liberator of Niger Delta region, stressing that the federal government of Nigeria should grant Tompolo total freedom by releasing his seized properties, funds and vacate his company premises, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari should release the aforementioned things to Tompolo as his birthday gift to the Niger Delta former warlord.
Chairman of the Ernest Bebenimibo Foundation vowed that as long as God keeps blessing him, the Foundation will continue to do its best for the advancement of humanity in Niger Delta and beyond.
In his words: “Today we join the world in general and Niger Delta in particular to celebrate the 50th birth anniversary of the Liberator of Niger delta.
“In your life is the light and liberation of many. You have proven to be a great leader with love, patience and sacrifice for the people. On this memorable day we celebrate you and pray that your life enjoys greater glory, peace and joy.
“All of us at Ernest Bebenimibo Foundation says, ‘Happy birthday to you sir”.
It would be recalled that today the 12th day of April 2021 marks the birth anniversary of Tompolo as he now clocks 50 years.
