The presidential candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Abubakar Atiku on Wednesday, said the ruling All Progressives Congress denigrated his plans to reform the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited in 2018.
The former Vice President said this on his verified Twitter handle few hours after the APC-led government finally unveiled the commercialisation of the NNPC on Tuesday.
PLATFORM TIMES reports that Atiku however showed his pleasure to the development, adding that he has backlog of such plans for Nigeria.
“I had in 2018 made public my plans to reform the NNPC to make it more profitable, transparent and efficient. The APC-led government denigrated me for my patriotic vision.
“But today, I am happy to note that the same government has taken a tentative step along the lines of the suggestions that I had made. It is a step in the right direction, but we are still far from what I had envisaged.
The former VP further said, “I hope I’ll have the opportunity to complete the process of turning the NNPC into a genuinely world-class company in the mould of NLNG, Aramco of Saudi Arabia and Petrobras of Brazil, where Nigerians and institutions will invest in.”
