Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva opines that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi is no match for Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Sylva made the comment on Thursday, December 1 at the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State.

“They say Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar, but I told them that those people are no match for our candidate because we must look at their track records,” the former governor said.

“What did Obi do in Anambra state when he was a governor?”

"The minister also said Douye Diri, governor of Bayelsa who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has failed to govern the state well. “You can see why it is so. Can an umbrella protect you from the flood? We had serious flooding in Bayelsa that affected every home and every family in the state,” he said.
