CISLAC: FG encouraging criminality with Tompolo’s pipeline surveillance contract

The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) has described the Federal Government’s award of a pipeline surveillance contract to Government Ekpemupolo as a promotion of criminality. 

Auwal Musa, the Executive Director of CISLAC, said this in a statement on Monday: “Who oversight the procurement process of this award? Were there bids, and what process led to his emergence on this award? Or is our bureau of public procurement also an incompetent institution that couldn’t deliver on a free and equitable process? On the other, doesn’t the law have clear stipulations on contract awards in Nigeria”, the statement partly read.

Tompolo, a former leader of the militant group, Movement For the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), was recently awarded a pipeline surveillance contract by the Federal Government reportedly worth millions of naira.
