Timipre Sylva, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, has said President Muhammadu Buhari will address issues raised by #EndSARS protesters.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Sylva spoke on Wednesday, when he hosted Nigerian singer, Davido.
The minister, in a statement by his spokesperson, Julius Bokoru, said Buhari “is on a fair and right trajectory in addressing concerns raised by the #EndSARS protesters”.
It was gathered that Sylva and the ‘FEM’ crooner discussed several issues during the meeting, including art, politics, youth empowerment, and harmonisation of the various age grades in the country.
They also discussed the possibilities of building platforms for youth development and talent discovery.
Sylva reiterated the Federal Government’s commitment to youth empowerment.
He, however, urged Nigerian youths to stop blaming the leaders for their problems and find ways of initiating solutions to make the country better.
“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,” he said.
On his part, the artiste 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.
Davido was also said to have observed that petrol is costlier, heavier, and less eco-friendly compared to gas.
