“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, I congratulate an illustrious son of the Niger Delta, High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo on the occasion of his 53rd birth anniversary.

“A man of peace, Tompolo, as he is affectionately known, has made significant contributions to the growth and development of the oil-rich Niger Delta and has persistently partnered1 regional administrations to uphold peace.

“As he celebrates his 53rd birth anniversary, it is my prayer and that of the people of Delta and Nigeria, that God will continue to bless him with good health and wisdom to continue in his services to the country and humanity,” the Governor said.
