The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has finally released his long-awaited 62-page campaign manifesto, ahead of the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Channels TV reported that the manifesto which is tagged, “It’s Possible” will be formally unveiled to Nigerians on Sunday.
It was gathered that the manifesto concentrated on critical areas like security, production, institutional reforms, the industrial revolution, infrastructural development, human capital development, and robust foreign policy.
Meanwhile, page 18 of the manifesto itemized Peter Obi’s economic plan for Nigeria as he proposed a complete shift from Nigeria being a consumption nation to a production nation that is driven by an agrarian revolution and export-oriented industrialization.
The manifesto read in part, “Secure and unite our dear nation, and manage our diversity such that no one is left behind in Nigeria. “Move Nigeria from consumption to production and embark on comprehensive legal and institutional reforms and practicable restructuring measures, to fight corruption; ensure the enthronement of the rule of law, and decisively tackle all forms of corruption.
“Improve access to finance, particularly to MSMEs, youths, and women, to significantly reduce unemployment and insecurity. “Ensure that in policy and practice, governance will be made more inclusive, cost-effective, transformative, and less transactional. No more sharing of the national wealth by a few.”
