I’ll expose, shame oil thieves if elected president, says Atiku


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has vowed to expose and shame all oil thieves in Nigeria if elected president.

He made this statement during an interactive session with the Business Dialogue Stakeholders Forum in Lagos on Saturday.

Atiku said he is aware of those behind oil theft in the country, hence his decision to expose them.

He also vowed to confiscate all unoperational oil blocs allocated to some Nigerians.

“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,” Atiku promised.

The former Vice President also vowed to privatise the refineries in the country to improve productivity.

It would be recalled that he had earlier vowed to sell the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited if elected president.

Oil theft has been one of the major issues confronting the sector.
