2023: Atiku Pledges To Empower Youth With $10b, Says He Will Sell Refineries To Raise The Money
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed his plans for Nigerian youths on Monday if elected president next year at the polls.
The PDP flag bearer said if elected in 2023, he will empower Nigerian youth with a sum of 10 billion dollars, which he would raise from the sales of the four oil refineries in the country.
Naija News reports that Atiku disclosed his plans for the youth at the flag-off of PDP’s presidential and governorship campaign rally in Lagos State.
He noted that the proceeds from the sales of the refineries would be used by his administration to empower youths.
He said: “If I’m elected, I will empower youths with 10 billion dollars to invest in youths and employment, and people have been asking how I will get the money.
“If I privatize Warri, Kaduna, and Port Harcourt refineries, we will get 10 billion to empower Nigerian youths. In the last 23 years, you have been governed by one family, but PDP is out to change that.”
He also promised Lagosians that the PDP governorship candidate in the state, Olajide Adediran aka as Jandor would end the dominance of a particular family with his emergence at the polls next year.
