Group hails Tompolo on ‘Courage in Leadership’ award

Northern Youths Progressive Network, has lavished praise on the founder of a famous indegenous private oil pipelines security outfit, Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited, High Chief Government Ekpemupolo popularly known as Tompolo on his meritorious award of “Courage in Leadership” 2024 by a national daily, The Sun newspapers.

The northern group, in a statement signed by its Convener, Bala Mohammed, said the prestigious award which took place on Sunday 18th February, 2024 in Lagos, did not come to us as a surprise, in view of Tompolo’s achievements in securing the nation’s oil and gas sector.

The statement said the provision of cutting edge security services by Tantita security company since its engagement by the federal government in August, 2022, has been a game changer in curtailing oil theft

“The company through the inspirational leadership of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo Tompolo has indeed demonstrated capacity and courage in dealing with the monstrous crude oil theft and vandalism by economic saboteurs and has restored sanity in the nation’s oil sector.

“Tantita has been ruthless in its approach of dealing with the scourge and that has led to the arrest of several vessels laden with illegal crude oil and most recently in 2024 are the arrest of MT Kali and Herbert spirit vessels in the creeks of the Niger Delta.

“This measure has no doubt added greater impetus to oil production in Nigeria with the nation’s daily oil output nearing 2 million barrels per day, thus raking more money to the nation’s coffer.

” It is equally instructive to note that since the engagement of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited by the federal government, the operations of the organisation has also brought about greater environmental resuscitation in the region once plagued by High level pollution to the ecosystem, human and the aquatic lives.

“We are convinced that this iconic award is motivational, apt and a needed tonic towards spuring the recipient and the company to do more for national development.

” While congratulating High Chief Government Ekpemupolo on the well deserved award especially coming from a highly reputable news medium in the country, we urged the federal Government to develop genuine political will to prosecute those arrested by the security outfit to serve as deterrent to others.

“As it is often said, the reward for hardwork is more work, Keep raising the bar of good work for posterity sake,” the group said.
