The Labour Party on Sunday released its manifesto tagged “It’s POssible: : Our Pact with Nigerians.”

Labour Party’s presidential canidate, Mr Peter Obi used his verified Twitter handle to announce 5.26 am on Sunday: “I have the honour to present our 72-page manifesto, titled, ‘It’s POssible: Our Pact with Nigerians’. This manifesto, its overarching and visionary policy planks, lay out our mission focus and mandate for securing, uniting and making Nigeria productive”.

The Head of Media of the party’s presidential campaign council, Mr Diran Onifade had earlier said that Obi was part of those who produced the manifesto, “unlike other parties where the candidates have no idea of the contents of such document”.

In the manifesto, the campaign is anchored on seven thematic: security, production, institutional reforms, the industrial revolution, infrastructural development, human capital development, and robust foreign policy.

Among others, the Labour Party candidate promised to:

“Secure and unite our dear nation, and manage our diversity such that no one is left behind in Nigeria; and

“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”.

Obi also pledged to “prioritise human capital development through robust investments in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) 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”.
