The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, has resigned from office.

Information obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday from unconfirmed sources said the minister has submitted his resignation letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the sources, Sylva has the intention to contest for the governorship election in Bayelsa and will participate in the forthcoming APC’s primary election, which is likely to hold anytime in April.

Sylva had governed Bayelsa for one term and has constitutional rights to contest for another tenure.

Meanwhile, when contacted, the minister’s senior adviser for media and communications, Horatius Egua, said he could not deny or confirm the resignation because he had not seen the resignation letter or been officially informed of the resignation by the minister.
