According IPF, the award is timely and well deserved, noting that Tompolo deserved more of such appreciation from Nigerian government, oil multinationals and private individuals.

The apex Ijaw media body said Tompolo’s contributions and sacrifices in providing proper security in policing the nation’s oil facilities had led to the massive transformation of the Niger Delta polluted environment and increased oil output or production in the country.

urged the Nigerian government, security agencies and relevant stakeholders to give him the necessary support in his stand against saboteurs of the nation’s oil asserts.

While commending Tompolo, IPF assured Tompolo of their massive support for his efforts to change the negative narratives against Ijaw and Niger Delta people.
