An international youth advocacy group, Nigeria Patriotic Youth Network, Int’l has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to urgently wade into the renewal of the Oil Pipeline Surveillance Contract awarded to Tantita Security Services Limited.
The group’s International Coordinator, Amb. Akpovire Godwin Ovuomaraini in an open letter to President Tinubu said Tantita’s contract needed to be renewed given their proven reliability, efficiency, and professionalism.
He said that those who didn’t want a renewal of the contract were behind oil theft and urged the President to urgently approve the contract renewal in the best interest of the nation.
The letter reads in part: “I trust this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to respectfully appeal for the immediate renewal of the oil pipeline surveillance contract held by Tantita Security Services, which was initially engaged by your esteemed predecessor.
