Nigerian opposition candidate vows to boost investment in oil sector if comes to power
Nigerian opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar will seek to boost investment in the country's oil sector if he becomes president next year, according to a draft copy of his manifesto.
He plans to reconsider the introduction of bidding rounds for marginal fields and oil blocks, privatise government-owned refineries and issue new licences for greenfield investments in crude refineries, the draft said.
The country is scheduled to hold a presidential election in February.
