The Chairman of Tantita Security Services, High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo (aka Tompolo), has promised to do everything possible to ensure increased daily crude oil production to boost the country’s revenue.

Tompolo made the promise at the weekend at Oporoza in Gbaramatu Kingdom of Delta State after receiving “Internal Security Meritorious Award” the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) conferred on him.

The Tantita chairman acknowledged the pivotal role of the media in promoting peace and stabilising democracy.

“The only place I have to call my country is Nigeria. So, I will do everything within my powers to see that crude oil production increases.

“The critical role of the media in Nigeria cannot be overemphasised. Nothing reasonable can be achieved without the media. I appeal that they should be appreciated,” Tompolo said.

The Federal Government engaged his TSSNL, a private pipeline surveillance security outfit, to curtail crude oil theft in the Niger Delta region.

NUJ President Chris Isiguzo lauded Tompolo’s contributions to internal security, particularly in the Niger Delta region.

He noted that the awardee had substantially helped the country to address crude oil theft which, according to him, had occupied the national life of Nigerians.

Isiguzo said: “Today, somebody has risen to the occasion and gathered an array of young men who have taken it upon themselves to help this country to continue to survive as a peaceful and united nation. His commitment, dedication, and diligence, Nigeria have, to a very extent, reduced the activities of men of the underworld consistently pilfering and taking our common patrimony for their selfish gains.

“We decided that we must accord the necessary recognition to the man who carries the flag, and birthed this organization; a man who has exceptionally distinguished himself and has been celebrated by Nigerians across all walks of life. He is a general in his right, and has distinguished himself, ensured and maintained an appreciable level of internal security.

“We have come to Oporoza to confer on him the Internal Security Meritorious Award of the NUJ.”

Isiguzo, who was accompanied by NUJ National Secretary Shuaibu Leman, among other officials, said the media remained the oxygen of democratic governance.

“If it collapsed, Nigeria will collapse,” he added.

According to him, security is a collective responsibility and not for the government alone, He said all hands must be on deck to address it.
