The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has restated his plan to sell all of Nigeria’s refineries to businessmen if elected in 2023.

Atiku stated this during a special interview with the Voice of America (VOA Hausa) during his visit to Washington DC, America.

He said, “My position on this is not new, I already said years ago, I will sell them because if you give them to the businessmen, they will run these refineries better.”

Regarding the oil theft in Southern Nigeria, the former vice president also promised to deal with the problem if he became president.

“This is a different problem that we have to see how we can use the power of the government to stop it because there must be cooperation between the NNPC and the security agencies who are responsible to look after Oil pipelines laid,” he said.

Nigeria has four oil refineries in Kaduna, Warri, and Port Harcourt, which are not working properly. As a result, most of the refined oil used in Nigeria is imported from foreign countries.
