Oby Ezekwesili warns FG over plans to sell NLNG, NNPC

The Senior Economic Adviser of the Africa Economic Development Policy Initiative and the initiator of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) project, Oby Ezekwesili, has strongly kicked against the plan by the Federal Government to put on sale the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG).
The former Education Minister in a statement issued on Monday said the sale of national assets will not do the nation’s ailing economy any good.
According to her, “I am opposed to the sale of any productive assets like the NLNG because there seems to be no clear economic vision and rigorous analytics to serve as the anchor for such a major policy thrust.
