Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to expose those behind oil theft in the country if elected as president next year.
The former vice president made this vow on Saturday, November 26, during an interactive session with the business community at Eko hotel, Lagos State.
Some of the prominent of captains of industries at the interactive session include: Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Jim Ovia, Femi Otedola, Tony Elumelu, Herbert Wigwe and Muhammad Hayatudeen and lot more.
Atiku further noted that, in the interest of national development, he would recover all oil blocs alloted to some Nigerians who had failed to put them to proper use for the benefit of the nation.
While he promised to continue to actively engage the country’s business class when he becomes the executive president of Nigeria, Atiku also highlighted strategies he would employ to fix the dwindling economy of the country.
“If you are not going to develop oil blocs given to you, we will take it away and give it to those who will develop it. We will also assemble the names of those involved in oil theft, publish same and prosecute them.”
He, therefore, expressed his resolve to privatise the refineries in Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Warri, saying, “I swear to God, I ‘ll privatise them.”
