TANTITA Security Services Nigeria Limited, TSSNL, a private pipeline security surveillance company operated by High Chief (Dr.) Government Ekpemupolo, a.k.a Tompolo, bagged Vanguard’s Crude Oil Infrastructure Security Award 2023.

The Chairman, Editorial Board , Vanguard Newspapers, Ocherome Nnana, led a team, including the Regional Editor, South -South, Emma Amaize, and Assistant Online Editor , Jeremiah Urowayino, to present the letter of award to the Chairman of TSSNL, Ekpemupolo, at Oporoza, Warri South-West Local Government Area, Delta State, yesterday.

Presenting the letter, Nnana said, “We are here to inform you that the Board of Editors of Vanguard Media Limited has honoured the Tantita Security Services Nigeria Limited with Vanguard’s CRUDE OIL INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY AWARD, for protecting critical national infrastructure and aiding economic recovery.”

“We note that you have distinguished yourself as a committed security firm, leaving a legacy of hard work and patriotism.

“You have demonstrated excellence by providing innovative security measures that have led to significant reduction in oil theft and sabotage of oil and gas assets.

“The cutting-edge measures you implemented have ensured better monitoring and control of activities around oil and gas facilities, leading to an increase in the nation’s oil production output between 2022 and now.

“These laudable exploits ensured the increase of production from an all-time low of 900 barrels a day to 1.5 million barrels, impacting positively on the nation’s crude oil earnings.

“Apart from creating a safe environment for crude oil production and export, you have also created employment for the youths of the Niger Delta, thereby addressing one of the major triggers of youth restiveness in the region.

“The remarkable success Tantita has recorded in the last two years, has not only revived the economy, but also impacted positively on the economic well-being of Nigerians.

“You have reaffirmed the capacity of indigenous companies at delivering sensitive jobs in the oil industry, thereby aiding the realisation of the nation’s local content objectives.

“We may not be there yet in terms of total eradication of oil theft, but your commitment and professionalism leave no doubt shown that it’s achievable.

“Therefore, the history of ongoing efforts at revamping the economy will be incomplete without the copious mention of Tantita’s contributions.

“These and many more earned you this prestigious award. The philosophy of this award is to recognise and celebrate Excellence, National Pride and Service to Humanity.” He stated.

The Awards Ceremony holds Friday, May 24, 2024, at The Convention Centre, Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. Time: 5.00p.m.

“We are grateful to Vanguard for the relationship we have had. We have come a long way and we will continue to do our best.”
