Timipre Sylva will rehabilitation Port Harcourt Refinery – Niger Delta Leaders

Niger Delta leaders said they had no reason to doubt that the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, will complete the rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt Refinery.

The leaders said they knew President Muhammadu Buhari and Timipre Sylva well enough to believe them whenever they gave their word on any issue.

They expressed dismay that despite several public assurances by Sylva, some Nigerians are still cynical about the Port Harcourt Refinery.

At a meeting in Yenagoa, the leaders praised Sylva for setting positive parameters for future political leaders.

‘’Chief Timipre Sylva is tackling the problems in the petroleum sector’’

The leaders hoped that when the rehabilitation of the Port Harcourt refinery was completed, it would work at 100 percent.

‘’We expect a professional Operations and Maintenance company to run the refinery’’.

The leaders emphasized competence, performance, pragmatic and purposeful leadership.
