CONTINOUS THREATS TO THE TRANS FORCADOS PIPELINE (TFP); A CALL TO ARREST THE UGLY RECURRENCE
 
 
MONDAY JUNE 29, 2020
 
PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI (GCFR)
ASO VILLA, ABUJA.
 
Dear Mr. President,
 
 
CONTINOUS THREATS TO THE TRANS FORCADOS PIPELINE (TFP); A CALL TO ARREST THE UGLY RECURRENCE 
 
 
The Itsekiri Consultative Congress, ICC, wish to condemn in strong terms the continous harassment and threats to Ocean Marine Solutions Limited, OMS, by some faceless groups in the Egbema and Escravos/Forcados axis over the Trans Forcados Pipeline surveillance contract.
 
 
It has become embarrassingly shameful that some, "key actors", who were beneficiaries of the previous "Surveillance Contract" have been trying unsuccessfully to tarnish the good works of OMS to the presidency. 
 
 
It is on record that Oil theft and illegal bunkering has drastically reduce since OMS came on board as against the norms before OMS was contracted by the Federal Government. 
 
 
For the longest period of time, illegal bunkering activities and oil theft have persisted in the region without any resolution until the surveillance contract with Captain Hosa Okunbo came into effect. 
 
 
We know as a fact that Ocean marine Solutions Limited has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nigerian Navy which has greatly enhanced the deliverables of the Company. With a fleet of purpose-built patrol Boats that has comprehensive communication equipments, Captain Hosa’s company possess the much needed facilities to competently perform the surveillance contract which it signed.
 
 
The allegation by some set of individuals that Captain Idahosa Okunbo (Captain Hosa) (Chairman/CEO Oceans Marine Solutions Limited does not want the good of the youths of Trans-forcados in Burutu LGA and Warri South West in Escravos is obviously misplaced and indeed distasteful.
 
 
We therefore urge the President Muhammadu  Buhari (GCFR) led government to ignore the threats being issued by the Egbema Youths Network and the Escravos/Forcados Central Youth body for showdown, and arrest those involved in the threats if anything should happen to any section of the Trans Forcados Pipeline, TFP.
 
 
We also want to use this medium to reiterate our earlier call on the Federal Government to halt the current 57 Marginal Fields offer recently issued  by the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR and come up with a new offer process that will accommodate Itsekiri owned Companies.
 
 
We wish to state unequivocally that the, "right of first refusal" must be given to Companies owned by Itsekiri sons and daughters on oil fields located within Warri Kingdom. 
 
 
The Federal Government must ensure that at least a consortium of Itsekiri owned companies is given the Marginal fields in Warri Kingdom.
 
 
We wish to restate our commitment to a continous peaceful business climate in the Niger Delta especially in the Oil-rich Warri Kingdom spanning three Local Government Councils in Delta South, two Local Government Councils in Delta Central, and one Local Government in Edo State.

National Publicity Secretary, ICC
