[Nasarawa]–Tamunoemi Sokari David-West popularly known as Tam David-West, a former federal minister of petroleum and energy under General Muhammadu Buhari has said that during his administration as minister, he had only three refineries and he was exporting petrol.

He made this revelation on weekend at the 5th combined convocation ceremony of Nasarawa State University, Keffi.

“When I was the Minister of Petroleum, I had only three refineries and I was exporting petrol. The country was moving on well. President Buhari needs to clean up his house.

He blamed the perceived failure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration on the presence of the corrupt individuals around him, contending that if Buhari must succeed, all corrupt officials in the government must be kicked out.

Speaking about his student days, he further revealed that he was not initially a science student but that he had to study privately to qualify an admission in the university.

“I was not a science student during my secondary school days but had to study biology, chemistry and physics as a private student, where I went on to study sciences at the university.”

While urging the graduating students to be law abiding, he also admonished the students to see themselves as examples for others to follow and to ensure morality and integrity rule their lives.
