Edo groups support Tompolo on pipeline surveillance contract

By Isaac Olamikan

Two groups in Edo State – Safe Edo Land and the 3rd Phase of Amnesty group – have given kudos to President Muhammadu Buhari for what they described as his wisdom in giving Pipelines Surveillance contract to ex-Niger Delta militant leader, High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo).

Rising from a meeting the groups, Safe Edo Land, led by Osasere Ekhator Ohonba and 3rd Phase of Amnesty group, led by ‘General’ Peter Abiodun Edah, said that by picking Tompolo to handle the Pipelines Surveillance contract, President Buhari has shown that he is a man who knows the benefit attached to take such a very useful decision.

We wish to make it categorically clear that President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to hand over the Pipelines Surveillance contract to Tompolo has shown that he is a man, who can take whatever decisions that in his wisdom he feels would be of benefit to the generality of Nigerians irrespective of status.

“That Tompolo got the contract is a big plus considering his pedigree and the fact that he is vast in the issues of the security surrounding the whole gamut of oil pipelines that transverse the length and breadth of the country.

“Not only that Tompolo has the right temperament to reach out to all the different groups and individuals in the communities bearing oil facilities/installations, his very humane approach in promising to ensure that all interests benefit from what accrues via the contract award is worth mentioning.”

Going further, Safe Edo Land and the 3rd Phase of Amnesty group said: “We are aligning with Tompolo on his promise of ensuring that no interest group or stakeholder is left behind in the process.


“Our membership cuts across the different ethnic groups that make up Edo State. We are no novice in the area of security monitoring of oil facilities/installations and peacekeeping in communities in which we have been involved for years.

“We assure Tompolo, and indeed Nigerians, that our involvement in this Pipelines Surveillance deal will be of value to the whole process.
