The Minister shared images of the two of them on his Twitter page on Tuesday.
It was gathered by Gistlover that Sylva during the meeting, assured the singer of the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to addressing all issues raised by #EndSARS protesters.
They also discussed issues about art, politics, youth empowerment, and the unity of Nigeria.
The Minister who described Davido as a “great mind, great character and great artist,” noted that Nigeria is blessed with a lot of raw talents that need to be harnessed to make the country a better place.
Further reports on the meeting between the duo quoted Sylva as saying in a statement by his spokesman, Julius Bokoru, that the president “is on a fair and right trajectory in addressing concerns raised by the #EndSARS protesters.”
He added that “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 harmonize, brainstorm, and come up with creative ideas to improve life in our country.”
On his part, Davido commended the minister for the gas initiative project, especially the National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP) and the Autogas schemes designed to lessen dependence on petrol.
