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, privatize 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.
