Davido visits Petrol Minister Sylva

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva told Afrobeats artists, David Adeleke also known as Davido that his generation can profer solutions to some of Nigeria's problems.

The Minister made the comment after the singer paid him a courtesy visit on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

A statement by the Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs to the minister, Mr Julius Bokoru said the duo discussed art, politics, youth empowerment and harmonization of the various age grades in the country.

Sylva said: “your generation is a smart one but it must proffer solutions too. If we all blame ourselves then we are farther and farther from any real solution.

“We must all harmonise, brainstorm and come up with creative ideas to improve life in our country.’’

The minister assured the musician that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration “is on a fair and right trajectory in addressing concerns raised by the #EndSars protesters’’, in response to Davido’s concern.

Earlier, Davido commended the minister for his signature gas initiative, especially the National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP) and the Autogas schemes designed to lessen dependence on petrol, reports.

The musician observed that petrol was costlier, heavier, and less eco-friendly compared to gas.

The minister and Adeleke also discussed the possibilities of building platforms for youth development and talent discovery.
