The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abubakar still insist he’ll sell the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) if elected president.
Atiku Insists He’ll Sell NNPC If Elected
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar yesterday in Kaduna reiterated his resolve to privatise NNPC if he comes victorious in the presidential election slated for February 23rd.
Atiku, who spoke while interacting with stakeholders from the 23 local government areas of Kaduna State at the Trade Fair Complex, said his resolve to sell the national asset was informed by the fact that NNPC has since inception in 1963 failed to meet its expectation of refining crude oil for the country’s consumption.
He insisted that he would sell off the NNPC to provide more development.
His decision, he added, was based on the fact that only very few were benefiting from the operations of the national asset at the expense of the Nigerian people.
