Sylva hosts Davido, says FG committed to youth empowerment

The Federal Government’s commitment to youth empowerment has been reaffirmed by Timipre Sylva, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources.

Mr Julius Bokoru, the minister’s Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, said Sylva assured him when he met David Adeleke, also known as Davido, on Wednesday.

The minister and Adeleke, the award-winning singer, spoke about art, politics, youth empowerment, and the blending of the country’s different age groups.

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.

The musician observed that petrol was a 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.
