A clip from PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar‘s comments on Wednesday is making the rounds on social media.
Atiku was addressing the business community in Lagos at an event themed “Getting Nigeria’s Economy Working : A Pragmatic Approach” when he began discussing privatising the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
“I’m committed to privatising NNPC. I swear, even if they’re going to kill me, I’ll do it. At the end of the day, privatising NNPC is going to be to our own advantage because you’re not going to lose anything,” he says.
He went on to add that he’ll reduce the size of the government and hand over some responsibilities to other tiers of government.
“I’m also not going to enrich members of my family, but my friends. Are my friends not entitled to be enriched? As long as there is no element of corruption there,” he said about his privatisation plan.
