Buhari specially loves Ijaw people because of ex-President Jonathan – Sylva


The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, says President Muhammadu Buhari has an exceptional love for the people of Ogbia, an Ijaw subgroup in Bayelsa State, because of their son, former President Goodluck Jonathan, who peacefully relinquished power to him in 2015.

Sylva revealed this on Friday while inspecting the ongoing construction of the Nigerian Oil and Gas Park Scheme (NOGaPS) being constructed by the Nigeria Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) at Emeyal 1, Ogbia Local Government Area of the state.

Sylva, who is a former Governor of Bayelsa State, said: “President Muhammadu Buhari specially loves Ogbia people and that I can tell you for free. Buhari loves the Ogbia people because Goodluck Jonathan, who was President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, willingly allowed one of the most peaceful transitions in Nigeria.
