The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Saturdays presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has reiterated his resolve to sell the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, if elected.
Atiku said the NNPC will be sold to Nigerians with money to buy it.
Atiku stated this on Wednesday while interacting with stakeholders from the 23 local government areas of Kaduna state at the trade fair complex.
The former Vice President said his resolve to sell national assets was because NNPC has since inception 1963 failed to meet its expectation of refining crude oil for the country’s consumption.
He stressed that his decision is against the backdrop that only very few are benefiting from the operations of the national asset at the expense of the masses.
On who would buy the asset, Atiku said “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.”
