CHAIRMAN of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Ltd (TSSNL), Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo, isn’t behind the front page adverts placed in some national newspapers to celebrate the 72nd birthday of President Bola Tinubu.

Dr Bebenimibo said that Tompolo, who’s the Ibe-Ebidouwei of Ijaw Nation, couldn’t have been recalcitrant to pleas by President Tinubu to his well-wishers to channel such monies for birthday celebration on the media into taking care of the under-privileged in the country.

He said Tompolo did not place any advert nor instruct anyone or agency to do so on his behalf in respect of the president’s birthday.

Dr Bebenimibo reiterated that Tompolo would not venture into such insensitivity since President Tinubu had early advised that given the state of the nation, such money meant to celebrate his birthday on the media or ceremony should be channelled to the underprivileged in society.

“The attention of High Chief Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, the Ibe-Ebidouwei of Ijaw Nation and Chairman of Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited has been drawn to adverts placed in front and inside pages of some Nigerian Newspapers celebrating President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at 72 years today.

“For the records, High Chief Tompolo did not place any advertisements to celebrate Mr President in the media.

“He did not also instruct anyone to do so on his behalf. This is owing to Mr President’s instruction that no one should organise a birthday party or place advert to celebrate him in the media, as a result of the state of the Nation.

“That such money should be given as alm to the less privileged in the society.

“High Chief Ekpemupolo bought the idea of Mr President wholeheartedly, hence heeded to the warning and instruction of Mr President.

“High Chief Ekpemupolo believes in Mr President’s capacity in working toward repositioning of the country for steady economic growth and prosperity.

“It is against this background that High Chief Ekpemupolo keyed into the policy thrust of Mr President, by working in synergy with security agencies to totally eradicate illegal crude oil activities in the Niger Delta region for maximum productivity for economic prosperity.

“We wish to emphasize that high Chief Ekpemupolo did not place any advert to celebrate Mr President.

“Those behind these adverts placement may have done this in good faith, but may not be aware of the consequences of their action.

“It is our position that it is a grave error and insensitivity to the current state of things in Nigeria.

“High Chief Ekpemupolo expresses his deep regret for this action and also apologises on behalf of those who placed the adverts to Mr President for any embarrassment this action must have caused him. It is highly regretted,” the statement read.
