#NigeriaDecides2019: Atiku promises to privatize NNPC if Elected
The Presidential candidate running under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has outlined his intention for the Nigerian National Petroleum Commission (NNPC), insisting that he aims to privatize that sector by selling NNPC to the highest bidder.
Speaking during a meeting with stakeholders from the 23 local governments in Kaduna State, The Nation reports that Atiku said the NNPC had failed to meet expectations since its establishment in 1963 and it is time to push it to the private sector.
He also debunked the widespread rumours that he planned to sell NNPC to himself, insisting that “The NNPC will be sold to Nigerians with money to buy it.”
Its 63 years Nigeria found crude but up till now, we are yet to refine petrol and kerosine by ourselves.
We have refineries in Kaduna, Warri and Port Harcourt but saboteurs stopped them from working
