Call to revoke Nigeria security contract
Chief Edwin Clark asked the Government to revoke multi-billion pipeline and maritime protection contracts
FIGHT AGAINST PIRACY, OIL THEFT: Edwin Clark asks FG to revoke Tompolo’s contract
Former Federal Commissioner of Information and Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark yesterday asked the Federal Government to revoke the multi-billion naira pipeline and maritime protection contracts awarded to two former leaders of the Niger Delta militants, Government Ekpemukpolo (Tompolo) and Asari Dokubo.
The Ijaw leader, who said this while contributing to a debate on the report of the National Conference Committee on Public Finance and Revenue, said government should revoke the contracts because it has not contributed to reducing oil theft as desired by government.
“I want to advise the government to withdraw the contracts awarded to Tomplolo and Asari Dokubo because they have failed to stop oil thefts in the country. Instead, youths from areas where oil facilities are located should be given the job,” said Clark.
The Octogenarian said the militants were sabotaging the efforts of government to stop oil theft because they want to retain their pipeline contracts.
