Tinubu will visit the Niger Delta to meet with Tompolo, a former militant leader
The High Chief Government, often known as Tompolo, and the All Progressives Congress (APC)presidential candidate Bola Tinubu are anticipated to meet behind closed doors.
Tompolo, according to Onikewide, is the founder of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta and a former militant group commander.
However, Tinubu is anticipated to be in the oil region today as part of his strategic engagement of stakeholders ahead of the 2023 election. Before leaving, he would have a private conversation with Tompolo.
With a visit to Oporoza, the ancestral capital of the Gbaramatu Kingdom in the Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta state, Tinubu would resume his electioneering tour.
The APC presidential candidate is scheduled to honor His Royal Majesty Oboro-Gbaraun II, Aketekpe, Agadagba, the Pere of the Gbaramatu kingdom, and then travel to Tompolo's house.
Recall that Tinubu was just two weeks ago in Delta State, where he inaugurated the APC's campaign for the 2023 election at a sizable gathering in Warri.
Flood Victims in Three States Get Aid as Tompolo Donates N150M in Relief Items
According to Naija News, Tompolo gave flood victims in three States, including Bayelsa, Delta, and Rivers, relief supplies on Monday.
The Tompolo Foundation, run by the chief priest of the Egbesu god, distributed the aid.
Tompolo stated previously that the act was a part of efforts to lessen the suffering of those impacted by the recent catastrophic storm.
2,400 bags of rice, 100 bags of beans, 200 bags of garri, 5,000 yam tubers, 200 kegs of palm oil, 600 kegs of groundnut oil, and 2,000 boxes of noodles were among the products estimated to be worth N150 million.
Since the previous flood in 2012, the Tompolo foundation has been in the business of providing aid to the "less privileged," according to Dr. Paul Bebenimibo, the executive secretary of the foundation, who was presenting relief supplies to representatives of the devastated areas in Warri, Delta state.
His business just received an N48 billion contract from NNPC Limited to monitor oil pipelines.
Massive oil theft in the Niger Delta, according to analysts, is to blame for Nigeria's economy's persistent problems.
