The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday said he would take practical steps to reposition the economy if elected.
Delivering the 2019 Quarterly Island Club Business Lecture in Lagos, the PDP flag bearer promised to restore investor confidence in the economy.
In the lecture titled, “My Vision to get Nigeria Working Again,” Atiku said he would support the private sector by undertaking reforms that would unleash growth in the economy.
“We will restore confidence in the Nigerian economy. We will implement policies to drive growth.
“Today, Ghana – a country with just 14 per cent of our population – attracts more Foreign Direct Investment than Nigeria.
“In order to reverse the trend, our economic policies would be more coherent, consistent and therefore more predictable by the business community.
“Nothing could be more threatening to investment flows than an environment that is full of policy flip-flops,“ he said.
“The #AtikuPlan will undertake a de-regulation of the downstream sector of the economy, review the PIB and privatise all four state refineries that operate at less than 10 per cent of their installed capacities.
