Mr Peter Obi, Labour Party’s presidential candidate, weekend, released his campaign manifesto for his 2023 presidential bid after a prolonged delay.
Obi’s manifesto, 62 paged, is anchored on securing and uniting Nigeria’s diversity and prudent management of the nation’s resources.
The manifesto, according to Obi, is aimed to ‘move Nigeria from consumption to production and embark on comprehensive legal and institutional reforms and practicable restructuring measures to fight corruption, and ensure the enthronement of the rule of law, and decisively tackle all forms of corruption’.
Obi further pledged to put in the front burner human capital development ‘through robust investments in STEM education, health, and infrastructural development, with emphasis on wealth creation, distribution and sustainable development’.
He also pledged to: “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.”
