PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar promises to privatise NNPC


PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to reduce the size of the federal government if elected.

Atiku, who spoke at a meeting with the Business community on Wednesday, said his support for restructuring remains unchanged and he will liberalise several sectors of the economy.

He also promised to streamline the activities in the petroleum sector by privatising NNPC.

Atiku, who said that good education was key to achieving economic growth, stated that for a technology driven economy, the education policy must be changed.

He warned, however, that getting a job under his government would not be automatic, saying the job seeker must be highly skilled.
