The former Niger Delta militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, Tompolo has called for calm and order over the outcome of the March 28, presidential and national assembly elections. He said the victory of the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Buhari as the will of God and the wish of Nigerians.
According to Tompolo, ‘I believe that nothing can happen if God has not approved it. Peace is a prerequisite for national development. People should remain calm also during the governorship and state assembly elections.
He asked the people to be orderly, calm and embrace peace. The will of the people is sacrosanct and the existing peace should be maintained. He commended Nigerians especially the people of the South South and the South East for their support for President Jonathan for the second term, though it was not sufficient to assure him victory.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
