Atiku slams NNPCL over move to hand PH refinery to private operators

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has slammed the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL over the move to hand over the newly-repaired Port Harcourt refinery to private entities.

Rather, the former vice president disclosed that the refinery should have been sold before the repairs to avoid debt.

He noted that the country’s oil firm must explain to Nigerians what they stood to gain by handing over the refinery to a private firm.
