The Director General of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, Gbenga Daniel, has stated that if Atiku Abubakar emerges winner of the 2019 presidential election, the Nigeria Stock Exchange would record gains.
Daniel, who is a former governor of Ogun State, made this known on Sunday while speaking on Channels TV.
He said: “Take this as a prediction, when in February 2019, the election results are reeled out and Atiku becomes president, the first thing that you (Nigerians) are going to see is that activities on the Nigerian stock exchange is going to rise.
“You will see instant (upward) movements indicating that people believe there will be an environment where they can bring in the capital.”
The former governor stated that the country’s high inflation figures and a drop in the value of the naira were as a result of the policies of the present government.
“It was capital flight occasioned by the ‘fear of Buhari’ that brought about the inflation, we are facing and the collapse of the Naira,” he said.
