The traditional ruler of Great Idjerhe kingdom, Delta State, Hm King Obukowho Monday Whiskey Jp. Udurhie 1, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, not to be influenced by individuals or groups who are against the renewal of a security pipeline contract awarded to Tantita Security Limited.

The ruler emphasized the importance of the contract for the economic development of the nation, particularly in the Niger Delta region, which has faced environmental challenges and economic decline.

He reiterated that some dark forces are hiding under the pretext of freedom of speech to work against the nation’s economic development by openly opposing the renewal of the current security pipeline contract.


The traditional ruler, in a statement on Tuesday, expressed worried that those element had forgotten the sorry state of the Niger Delta environment and the near total collapse of all aquatic life and economic down turn before Tantita Security came to the rescue.

“It is instructive to note that apart from Tantita Security other companies were also awarded the same pipeline Security and there are possibilities that more others will be awarded. So the question is why are people against Tantita Security project.

“Maybe they expected that Tantita’s authorities will compromise and allow the forces of darkness to continued with their nefarious activities that brought the nation’s economy to its knees while some disgruntled elements smile to the banks.


“The Federal Government should not only discard such forces of darkness but should reward Tantita Security authorities by expanding the scope of their work as can be seen from their performance chant and rewarding hardwork and patriotism as shown by authorities of Tantita Security will encourage others to work for national interest rather than selfish individual interest.
