Update on how Tompolo’s Tantita is improving the nation’s economy, making Niger Delta region livable
By GbaramatuVoice Editorial Board
As part of efforts to keep the global community abreast with developments in the Niger Delta region, Nigeria, GbaramatuVoice Newspaper authoritatively reports without mincing words that High Chief Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, the Ibe-Ebidouwei of Ijaw Nation, has recently, through his Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited, has recently achieved so many feats that will on the long run improve Nigeria’s foreign earning power and transform the Niger Delta region into a livable environment.
Specifically, in his effort to execute a pipeline surveillance contract aimed at curbing oil theft and pipeline vandalism in the country, as awarded him by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Tompolo has reportedly achieved some startling feats.
A few days ago, Nigerians watched with excitement how Tompolo and his men discovered illegal oil pipeline that have operated unhindered for nine solid years in Delta state, and arrested a crude oil tanker, MT Deima, with International Maritime Organization (IMO) number 7210525, loaded with an unspecified quantity of crude oil at the Escravos River of Delta state.
Most importantly, Tantita has within this couple of weeks discovered about 58 illegal oil points on the waterways of Delta and Bayelsa states.
As Niger Deltans and of course the entire nation celebrate these feats, GbaramatuVoice Newspaper, believes that there is even more critical area of Tompolo’s achievement that has directly impacted positively on the lives of the people of Niger Delta region, yet, under reported.
This area has to do with the changing state of the Niger Delta environment.
Those that are conversant with the Niger Delta will agree with GnaramatuVoice that the region persistently suffered environmental pollution, degradation and devastation arising from illegal refining activities popularly called Kpofire, and made worse by crude oil exploration and production by the International Oil Companies (IOCs) operating in the region, stubbornly known for non compliance with international best practices.
About one month after Tompolo commenced the operation, the environmental narrative appears to be changing.
The once polluted environment is giving way to a more convivial and livable one. Observations by GbaramatuVoice crew‘s recent tour of the once heavily polluted Warri to Escravos and Forcados Rivers and creeks supports this assertion.
Community dwellers who spoke with delight to GbaramatuVoice during the fact finding mission explained that in the past two weeks or so, each time it rains, they fetch and use for domestic purposes the rain water as it is no longer polluted or contaminated.
Thus, the newspaper calls on the Federal Government to devise other creative ways to make the ongoing experience and development in the region a sustainable one.
