He urged citizens to reject acts of sabotage and work together towards a brighter future for all.

According to Ekpomupolo, “I don’t have any other place except Nigeria. Nigeria is the only country I have so we must all join hands to protect and move Nigeria forward.

“Our economy is in dire need of survival so we can not fold our hands and allow some persons to sabotage the nation’s economy because of greed.
