Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has finally released the campaign manifesto for his 2023 presidential bid.
The 62-page manifesto document was titled ‘Our Pact With Nigerians: Creating A New Nigeria.’
According to the document, Obi’s campaign is anchored on seven thematic areas of security, production, institutional reforms, industrial revolution, infrastructural development, human capital development as well as a robust foreign policy.
Specifically Obi and his vice, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, pledged to;
“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.”
The LP candidates also promised to “prioritize Human Capital Development through robust investments in STEM education, health, and infrastructural development, with emphasis on wealth creation, distribution and sustainable development.
“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,” among other promises.
