Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has called on ex-Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, to reveal his true identity and the authenticity of his academic certificates.

Frank, in response to a statement by Sylva where he referred to him as a blackmailer, accused the former minister of parading different names.

Frank urged Sylva to prove his academic certificates’ authenticity as that is the primary concern.

He stated that it is not enough for Sylva to call him names and abuse him; he must tell the public his real identity and show evidence that his academic certificates are genuine.

According to Frank, as a public servant who has governed Bayelsa State, served as Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, and is now preparing to be re-elected as governor, the people of Bayelsa and Nigerians, in general, deserve to know who Timipre Sylva is.

Frank pointed out that Sylva has had different names on his primary school certificate, WAEC certificate, first-degree certificate, and postgraduate certificate.

He also questioned Sylva’s claims that the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, was his classmate and the Governor-elect of Abia State, Alex Otti, was his contemporary at the University of Port Harcourt.

Frank revealed that in processes Sylva filed in support of a libel case in America, he claimed that he first changed his name in 1987.

However, in a statement issued three days before Frank’s call, Sylva said he changed his name in 2022 and gazetted it.

Frank concluded that Sylva’s contradictory claims show a man who is not only evasive about his true identity but also a habitual liar who has secured top political positions based on dubious names and credentials.

Frank stated that Sylva’s attempt to politicize this issue had failed and that Bayelsans and Nigerians would continue to demand that Sylva reveal his true identity.

He promised to lead that crusade irrespective of Sylva’s intimidation, name-calling, harassment, and other attacks.
