The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday disclosed how he would raise 10 billion dollars to empower Nigerian youths if elected president in 2023, Njenje Media News reports.
Atiku vowed to sell the four oil refineries in Nigeria and use the proceeds to empower Nigerian youths.
He disclosed this at the flag-off of PDP’s presidential and governorship campaign rally in Lagos State.
Atiku also said the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State would end the dominance of a particular family.
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.”
