Coalition of Militant groups from the Nine States of the Niger Delta region led by the Supreme Egbesu Freedom Fighters have accepted the decision of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo also known as Tompolo to set up a substantive board for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and call off the planned attacks against oil installations and facilities in the region.
The Militant groups said the decision to accept the decision of Tompolo after a stakeholder meeting at Oporoza in Delta State is based on his years of integrity, steadfastness, courage, fearless and the dogged spirit for not deviating in standing with the harmless, emancipated, neglected and dejected environmentally polluted and denied long suffering people in the Niger Delta region most especially those in the oil and gas producing communities in the creek.
The self-styled commanding officer of the coalition of militant groups, Major Gen Agadagba 1 also known as Thunderstorm, said in a statement issued after an emergency meeting with it’s unit commanders in the creeks of the region, that the decision to halt planned attacks against oil installations does not preclude the directive to all strike force unit commanders to be on standby in case the Federal Government fails to fulfill their part of the accord reached at the Stakeholders meeting between the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio at Oporoza.
The Militant groups, led by the Supreme Egbesu Freedom Fighters ,in the statement made available to leadership via electronic mail, stated that “After due consultation and plea from all well-meaning stakeholders including traditional rulers and intervention of the INC President, Prof. Benjamin Okaba, the coalition of militant groups have decided to accept the decision of revered High Chief Government Ekpemupolo also known as Tompolo and on our part we have also stepped down the planned attacks on all oil flow stations and bring down the crude oil production to zero.”
“We are however on red alert through our strike forces and unit commanders and still standing firm with the President of the Ijaw Youths Council,(IYC) Comrade Timothy Igbifa. And we are still on red alert mode according to our high commando Strike Force Unit directive before the end of this month until the substansive NDDC board is inaugurated before there will be total peace and stay off from our ultimatum declared so far.But for now, all actions has been step down a little bit but all our striking force units are still placed on red alert on most strategic locations of oil flow stations until we see the needed result as promised by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio and the federal government agreement concord reached by the various Stakeholders headed by the delegation of the Deputy Governor of Delta State with the Leadership of INC, traditional rulers and other stakeholders.”
The coalition of Militan groups also want to use this medium to commend and salute Tompolo for his steadfastness, focus minded, his sincerity for standing firm and upright at all times without disappointing them and for speaking out and sticking his life and his family with the entire Gbaramatu Kingdom undermining the severe conciconses despite threats, ‘We want to say ,you have done well and you have become our second living Ijaw National Hero, After Jasper Adaka Boro of blessed memory. And we want to state categorically that the reason why the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio become inconsistent in talks and playing prank with the rest ethnic nationalities was because men like Tompolo were initially silent to give him chance to redeem himself as Demi god before everybody in the region.
“ It must be noted that he has failed to honor the agreement reached with stakeholders that gathered at the palace of one of the ex-Militant leader now a king in Rivers State at Okochiri in Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State on the 16th of January 2021 five months ago. At the palace of king Tom Ateke, with the likes of Victor Ebikabowei Ben, AKA Gen boyloaf, Chief Bibopre Ajube AKA Gen Shoot at Sight and others, never showed the hidden motive of denying other Ethnic Nationalities to be well representated in the commission by opposed to the inauguration of the substantive NDDC board for reasons best known to Akpabio alone.
“He successfully carry out his secret diversive tendencies of interior motives unknown to them, after huge amount of millions of dollars exchange hands after that meeting in Rivers State at Okrika, except Tompolo alone who refuse to attend such kind of self-inflicting jamboree meeting for mere stomach infrastructure purpose wish is not in the overall interest of the Niger Delta People. He went away with his plan because they all kept quiet because corrupt money really exchanged hands from Akpabio at that particular stakeholders meeting.
Unknown to them all that Akpabio, through money, had already organized a coup de vendetta” against the other oil producing states that make up the NDDC board and against the entire peace loving Ethnic Nationalities in the Niger Delta region.”
But at this point point in time we all have come to be aquinted with the Akpabio diversive tendencies of tricks of fooling the entire region with the name one purported fake stage managed audio empty foreinsic audit report as a means to deny every other Ethnic Nationalities to be well representated in the NDDC commission, thank God it has come to end.
