The main challenger of the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Alh. Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday hopped to Yola ahead of the Monday launch of his policy direction in respect of the 2019 Presidential election and governance of Nigeria if elected President in February next year.

Atiku, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) candidate, who flew to Yola, the capital city and administrative Headquarters of Adamawa State, early this morning in his private jet, would meet with some PDP leaders from across the country, strategists and supporters to unveil his policy for Nigerians as he seeks their votes in 2019.

The former Vice - President disclosed the planned policy launch  on his Twitter handle and this is believed to be  one of the outcomes  of the decisions reached during  weeks - long  strategic retreat in Dubai  earlier.

"On my way to Yola, preparing for our policy launch on Monday, he tweeted at #TheAtikuPlan.

However, Civil Rights activist and Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Shehu Sani, has faulted Atiku's electioneering promise to sell the nation's Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to private hands if necessary.

But Senator Sani representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district at the National Assembly said Atiku's electoral proposal to sell 90% of this national asset to private hands, is a frank and honest, but unlikely to bring any good dividend.

The activist Senator who faulted Atiku on his Twitter handle, added that the auctioning strategy won't help now or in future as was the nation's experience in the past.

"Selling 90% of the NNPC as a campaign promise is being brutally frank and honest. But its a condemnable proposal and a dangerous intention.

"Auctioning the country has not helped in the past and will not help in the future," Sani tweeted.
