Chief Timipre Sylva, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, has picks the N100 million presidential forms of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) amidst the prevailing gasoline shortage.
In the last three days, Nigerians have spent hours at gas stations, which the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) attributes to poor depot loading.
Good People of Nigeria claimed to have received the forms on behalf of former Bayelsa governor Sylva.
Alhaji Mohammed Abu Abaji, the chairman of the organisation, stated in front of the NNPC Towers in Abuja that the group has been closely monitoring the minister’s efforts to control Nigeria’s petroleum resources and feels he is the best person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated, “That is why we purchased these forms and encouraged him to run in the APC primary; I believe it is the least we can do for him.”
“During his tenure as minister, he has clearly spent a great deal of time in the Niger Delta speaking with his people. We feel that as president, a great deal will occur for Nigeria’s oil development possibilities. We, the wonderful people of Nigeria, are donating collectively. Everyone you see here has contributed to the fund.
Sylva got the forms and praised the group while expressing surprise that they went to such lengths to secure them for him.
However, the minister stated that he would not confirm his approval of the forms because he must conduct extensive consultations before to making a decision.
“It is both humbling and shocking,” the speaker said. I will not provide you a direct response at this time. I will get back to you if I have decided to run for president of this country after consulting with my constituents and country’s leaders.
“I will speak with my leader, such as the Ijaw leader Edwin Clark, and I will also communicate with other leaders,” Sylva stated.
