The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar is running a capitalist agenda.
This allegation came from the APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole in reaction to Atiku’s purported plan to sell the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) if he wins in February.
“When you hear Atiku say ‘I will privatise NNPC even if they will kill me’, I don’t even know why he needed to add that one,” Oshiomhole told Channels TV.
“Who will kill him? He is not speaking to you because you don’t have money to buy NNPC. I don’t know how many Nigerians have the money to buy NNPC.
“He is speaking to his western audience. When he says he will float the naira, you know whose language, whose values his parroting. Those are IMF agenda. He wants to float the naira.”
According to him “if in Atiku’s word, floating the dollar means $1 to N1,000, so be it. You think he doesn’t know what he is talking? Of course, there are countries which, if they have their way, they want Nigeria to remain perpetually under-developed.”
