WAYS Backs Atiku On Plan To Privatise Oil And Gas Sector

Women and Youths Support Group, WAYS, for ATIKU 2019 has described as callous and anti-people, comments by some groups over plan by former vice president and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential hopeful, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to privatise parts of oil and gas sector, if he becomes the president of Nigeria.

A statement by Princess Kemi Adesanya-Eboda, WAYS National President/Global Co-ordinator described the “condemnation of Atiku’s genuine pronouncements as being misconstrued and blown out of proportion by some groups to castigate the former vice president. Atiku was speaking the minds of most Nigerians who desire a drastic change in that sector because of the monumental corruption associated with it.”

On his part, Mr Christian Aburime, WAYS National General Secretary and Director of Research and Strategy, described the current onslaught against Atiku as mere propaganda by some groups who are currently not comfortable with his towering popularity in recent time.

Aburime opined that Atiku’s pronouncement was in the best interest of the country, adding that “NNPC has become more of a conduit pipe for official and unofficial corruption and there was urgent need for some parts of the corporation to be unbundled and floated in the Nigerian Stock Exchange for every citizen to become a stakeholder so that the corporation can be viable for the benefits of the greater majority of Nigerians.”
