Former leader, Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND, General Freedom Adowei, yesterday, congratulated former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva on his appointment as minister of petroleum state, saying it was a well deserved one.
General Adowei also appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for entrusting Sylva with such position, assuring that the minister will deliver well as he understands the paraphernalia of good leadership.
He was optimistic that Sylva’s ministerial position would attract developmental projects and employment opportunity from his immediate ministry and other federal MDAs to Baylsans, Ijaw nation and Nigeria at large.
According to General Adowei, Sylva’s adminstrative experience as a governor and other capacities in the past would no doubt make him perform excellently well.
He urged Nigerians to give all the necessary support the minister may need to be more effective and efficient in his office.
He implored Sylva not to let President Muhammadu Buhari, Bayelsans and the petroleum ministry down in carrying out his ministrial responsibilities.
