IYC President hails Tompolo at 47, says Tompolo a return of Isaac Boro



WARRI- The National President of Ijaw youths council (IYC) world-wide Barr. Oweilaemi Pereotubo has hailed High Chief Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo on his 47th birthday celebration.  He described Tompolo as Late Major Isaac Jasper Boro’s reincarnate who returned to complete his unfinished assignment to liberate the people of Niger Delta.


IYC National President Oweilaemi made the assertion in a press statement sent to Daily Watch, said ‘‘We wish to join family, friends, millions of admirers, well-wishers all over the world and the entire Ijaw Nation which is the fourth largest ethnic group in Nigeria to felicitate and also celebrate with our great leader, hero and symbol of the contemporary struggle for the emancipation cum liberation of the Ijaw Nation and the Niger Delta region from economic and political servitude.

‘‘It is an incontrovertible fact that the history of the contemporary struggle of the great and most blessed people of the Niger Delta to participate in the management of our abundant and enormous resources shall be grossly incomplete without the mention and proper acknowledgment of our hero, High Chief Government Ekpemukpolo Aka Tomopolo GOC.

‘‘High Chief Government Ekpemukpolo is a great blessing to the Ijaw Nation and his immeasurable and invaluable sacrifices and contributions to the advancement and promotion of the struggle justifies his perfect description as the resurrected and reincarnated ISAAC JASPER ADAKA BORO of our time.

‘‘This is one great and exemplary Ijaw leader that has refused to sleep because a vast majority of his suffering, oppressed, repressed, suppressed, subjugated, marginalized and over exploited Ijaw people do not have roof over their heads. Same way he has refused to eat and live in comfort and affluence because the average Ijaw man and woman on the streets of our towns and villages cannot boast of two square meals a day. Our environment has been polluted as a result of the ongoing environmental and economic genocide against our people by enemies of the Ijaw Nation’’ he stated.

According to him, ‘’As I write this message to commemorate this memorable day, i weep about the prevalent injustices, deprivation, degradation, devastation and total destruction of our environment and all our sources of livelihood. Sadly, it is the prevalence of these ills and many others that made this great leader swore to sacrifice his life and everything for the emancipation cum liberation of our great people.

‘‘As we celebrate this great day, we pray that Almighty God and our Ancestors shall continue to bless, guard, guide and protect you and the entire Ijaw Nation from our enemies, foes and adversaries. But let it be known once again that the Ijaw people have never been conquered and we shall never be conquered. The present campaign of calumny, violence and aggression against our great sons and daughters shall not break or destroy us but shall rather make us stronger, more united and prosperous like the unconquered Israelites and Jews.’’ He said
